I guess x11vnc can do that, but whats the point since theres no GUI (I guess) on your server.
The only thing you'll get is a black screen. You can control the server with ssh from a
terminal on a client. If you need to have a GUI on the server just setup a desktop edition as
server and then rdp/vnc to it...
I have two healess ubuntu servers I log in to with ssh. There is nothing to do on a server I
cant do with ssh. On one of the servers I've installed a haedless virtualbox with sevral OS -
XP, Wn7, fedora etc. But thats not your question...
From ubuntu desktop you can choose:
In this window you can set remote access to desktop.
For my opinion the best solution for remote Desktop is NX
), for 1 remote user is free.
Also you can you the free version called freenx
Install "vnc" on your client.
If you wanted a really light-weight way of doing it (and it's a far more secure way of
accessing a server because there's far less code on the server and therefore less chance of
security bugs being exploited in the software) then you can install just a few packages and
as long as your desktop machine has a GUI Desktop Manager (like Gnome or KDE for example)
then using SSH on your server you can launch GUI applications:http://tinyurl.com/6flw2zw
It sounds trickier than it actually is. Be sure to use blowfish compression for SSH to speed
things right up (ssh -c blowfish
On window, you can install "X-server"( search google for download) also you can download
"vnc" and install it.
