Works very well, little. I use it quite a bit between linux and windows machines. The *nix client/server is considerably more secure than windows and I find it fair bit faster under *nix. Since a GUI is involved, a fast connection is almost madatory to get anything accomplished. I believe it comes installed with Mandrake ready to go, not sure about RH. I wouldn't install the server on a mission-critical windows machine (and run it all the time), but it comes in handy at times and "works as advertised".
Sorry, I didn't look indepth, but is there a way to cut and paste between windows when using VNC, and also I've noticed Galeon won't fire up in the VNC viewer, although on the server side the desktop will activate another instance of Galeon on each attempt to invoke it from the viewer.
The Galeon problem might have something to do with the fact that 'galeon' is a wrapper around 'galeon-bin'. Depending on how VNC works, that might mean that galeon-bin is getting called with a diferent environment and therefore thinking it's supposed to display elsewhere. It looks like just a fairly short shell script, though, so you can probably manage to either write a new one for yourself that handles both VNC and regular display, or that you can call when you're running over VNC.
Well your suggestion worked littleman, making sure that Galeon is not started server side does the trick. BTW I'm keying this message on a laptop running Win/XP Pro VNC'ed into a Debian Linux system. Can't tell the difference can ya? -LOL
