Yep. Just set up x11vnc - you can configure it a variety of ways. You may want to look at tunneling it over ssh and/or setting up some of the authorization checks which by default are disabled. It's not necessarily snappy, and depending on the screen size and resolution on both ends, may be a little unwieldy and require some scrolling to get to the entire remote desktop, but it gets the job done. Depending on what you need, it may be sufficient (i.e. some long running thing running on your home machine which you want to check on or which you want to push a button etc) - but it's probably going to be frustrating if you expect to use it interactively for any length of time. Easy enough to set up and try out, though. -- Jon Hamilton hamil...@pobox.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
