    If the other machine is a Linux PC then I recommend nx: NoMachine NX - Desktop Virtualization and Remote Access Management Software

    Easiest way to enable vnc is from yast2>network devices.
    You can then connect to the hast computer by typing:
    vncviewer ipaddress:screen_no
    where screen_no is the screen number (try 1)
    Make sure vnc is installed and enabled on the ubuntu system and that the necessary firewall ports are open.
