I would like to use my freebsd and windows desktops remotly. I tried TightVNC but found it too slow for me, even on a 10mbps lan with all the tricks etc.. such as compression. I would think it would be unusable over a modem. I found Rdesktop and it does work nice to talk to my XP machine but the image is only 8-bit and would be better at say 24-bit. Is MS remote desktop encrypted, i have not even checked it yet ,,if not maybe their is a way to do rdesktop over ssh to the windows machine. Is there other good solutions such as VNC but faster?
Now, whats the best "Open Src" way to have a remote NIX* X-server session. I would like to use my freebsd desktop when i am traveling to check email, surf the web and maybe use myplayer to watch a movie or play a MP3. I was thinking of using the X protocol but heard it was too slow and very bandwidth hundry. Is the latter correct? I would also like to not only view my Freebsd computer from another nix* machine but also from a windows box, is there a windows X client? Anyways, i would appreciate some guidance and some input on other apps for remote management etc.. that i might want to look at. PS: The freebsd and XP machine at home are connected via a cable modem, and when traveling i usually have a 56k or dsl connection to the internet.
