There is also a VNC server solution that ties into running X displays (called x11vnc under Gentoo Linux; not sure if it exists in the ports tree though), and an X11 solution that has been customized for high transfer rates referred to as either nx or nomachinex. I found standard VNC to be annoying since it requires a running X server instance, which is a waste depending on what I have running, and both solutions I mentioned earlier run well for many people (tried x11vnc but not nomachinex). - -Garrett -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.5 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFFWD306CkrZkzMC68RAkUGAJ42lX30GEkymcGnTvr8c7f4n/epFgCeIWah uoDtlen53GF2t6N/VZ3e4uk= =HhzP -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
