Re: Attaching to a remote desktop?
Thanks for your suggestions. I think I prefer x11vnc because it is
independent of the Desktop Environment I choose. Also, I'm toying with
vnc-java, because using ssh for tunneling purposes isn't always an option.
It works with the standard config, now I'm trying to get it to work with
others, like 80/443. It seems x11vnc requires two ports at all times,
which is cumbersome, but I'm betting on 80/443 being available in most

On windows it grabs the desktop, on linux it connects to an already
running vnc/x session. This means that on windows you will get access
to the desktop as it is seen at the local machine, but on linux you
get to see a different desktop.
e.g. on a linux box you locally connect to desktop :0, but when you
start vnc server you will start it on desktop :1, which you connect to
remotely, a different desktop.
Not strictly true. If you use a VNC server which creates a new display,
this happens. But most of the VNC server implementations for X will
expose an exising display. If you run GNOME install Vino, this will
expose your current desktop over VNC and give you a nice UI to
