I'm using vnc to connect to my ubuntu box from my windows box however I don't like the way it works.
1) It doesn't start automatically. I have to be logged into my username before I can connect to my box.
2) It takes control of the screen on my ubuntu box which isn't what I really want to happen. I'm used to connecting via rdp in windows where I connect to the other computer and if you looked at the other screen you wouldn't even know I am logged on. This is handy if someone else is using the pc plus I just don't like everything that I am doing to appear on a computer screen that I can't see. I find it kind of freaky.
Can I achieve these in Ubuntu and if so what am I looking for.
Hope that makes sense.
