I am wanting to know the differences in usability for all the different remote desktop solutions there are for a linux system.
The ones I know of are ssh, vnc, and nx.
I have tried using freenx server, and I kind of got it working then it stopped after awhile. I kept getting error messages that the server had timed out.
My setup is this. I've got an Ubuntu 8.04 desktop which I want to be the host server. I've got a laptop that I want to be the client. They are both on my wireless network at home.
All I'm wanting to be able to do is view my desktop's desktop on my laptop. The laptop is running Xubuntu 8.04 with IceWM.
Obviously I am new to this so something that is also the simplest to configure would be the best option.
