    That depends.
    You can use PuTTY to ssh into your Linux machine to access the shell, or you can set up VNC on your Linux machine and use a VNC client on your Windows machine to use X remotely.

    setup the remote box with ssh or with vnc. then use the appropriate client to connect.

    I use ssh whenever possible, secured vnc for the rest.

    I use ssh to tunnel into VNC, that way no open vnc ports.

    Yeah, thats a better way of putting secured vnc. vnc jut rocks and is hard to beat. Tridia and tight are my two facorite vnc flavors.

    its an option. if you get tridia or tightvnc its there for sure. I think that AT&T's generic vnc has it too.
