I regularly use Frame remotely from various platforms with decent results. Application-wise it is pretty solid. Mostly, I use it over a local area network or across two centrally located LANs with one switch between them. How many 'hops' you have in between your desktop and remote machine, chapter size, how fast you scroll through your book, can play a big factor as well.
I have used Frame 7 and 8 running on Windows and Frame 8 running on Solaris (remote machine) by way of Windows Remote Desktop and rdesktop (Linux) (local or 'desktop' machine) The only thing I have noticed is that the copy or ctrl+C command does not always buffer consistently between the remote and the desktop machine (Linux). I would use this for instance if I have some source material on the desktop I want to paste into my FrameMaker doc open on the remote machine. I've also noticed that hex key codes don't work when trying to type special characters using the number pad. Normal shortcuts that use the qwerty characters work seamlessly. This might work if you use Windows Remote Desktop from a Windows machine rather than the rdesktop Linux variant. If you have a good Network connection, which I do, that also helps things along. The Solaris machine I use is a bit dated, and I use it mainly for doc build and check in using FrameScript. But rdesktop-ing to it works as far as I have seen.

I have this set up and I find that several files I work with blow up. I do not have this problem on other configurations, that is, not using Remote Desktop. I am on FrameMaker 7.2. Any help is appreciated!
