Re: using VNC to *control* a remote session

  ok, so does that give one the ability to control a remote session,
the way paul johnson was waxing nostalgic about earlier?  i must
investigate further ...


There are any number of ways to 'control a remote session'. If you mean specifically while it is also displayed on the main console, then the X module is one way to do it. I think KDE and Gnome have desktop sharing options too. I usually run the desktop I want to share under freenx and always access it remotely since the performance is better than vnc - but vnc is good enough it you just want to check some long-running program occasionally.
