    Default remote KDE access- freenx on backtrack

    Dear All,

    I have really tried to look all over to find a quick way to have access to KDE from remote pc.

    All indicators point at freenx.

    I tested this in knoppix. Seem to be great.

    First question. Am I barking up the right tree for remote kde access to BT3?

    Second question. If this is right path. Did anybody else get this working on BT3. I can not get freenx installed. Redhat, suse, mandrake, debian, solaris and fedora are listed as install options.

    Any pointers will be much appreciated.

    Why not use the built in VNC Server?

    Thank you for the response.

    I was under the impression freenx is much faster. (Hard to find proper evidence, some say twice as fast)

    Do I understand correctly:
    VNC is the preferred, perhaps best way to connect to Linux machine, and used by most of the users here?

    I would recommend RealVNC which is compatible with both Linux and Windows... It has a vncserver and vncviewer ez to use!

    I normally use RealVNC via a SSH tunnel, and BT comes with a VNC {TinyVNC iirc} pre-installed so if you are using the LiveCD but if you using a Full {or USB with Changes} I'd install RealVNC.

    Thank you for the recommendations. It is much appreciated.

    I am using VNC now. Both RealVNC and TightVNC from windows.
