I recently looked into this and came upon:


Have not tried xf4vnc out yet, but will this week. The latest beta 
version ( seems the most promising.

This attaches VNC to your "0" display through an XFree module so 
behavior is similar to the way VNC works on a windows system. 
Many potential uses, including remote support for Mum on her 
FreeBSD/Gnome2 desktop :-) 

Anyone else out there using the beta and have any comments?
