I honestly knew about VNC, but had dismissed it, when I read this review:
VNC in linux is very slow and can be a major pain in the but to
setup and run. Pretty much every linux distro out there has either a
FreeNX packaage or has ditro’ed www.nomachine.com
<http://www.nomachine.com> ’s now free NX server.
It runs fast, can be set to use only ssh for both the port it needs
and to do full encryption.
VNC on linux is a square peg for a round hole.
So, if FreeNX any better than VNC?
