    Default A good remote viewer

    Is there any application in linux that can provide a remote desktop over the internet? I've looked at something about using putty and all that but it puts me on a different desktop. I'm wanting to remote control my current desktop from my office computer. Possible?

    Absolutely possible, sure.

    x11vnc is a tool I use to show the main desktop, but the built-in "remote
    desktop" functionality also handles this without any problem. Both use a
    VNC client - I would tunnel over ssh over the 'net, because VNC traffic
    itself isn't encrypted.

    krdc should be installed by default I think. If not, it's available in the standard repos, just install it with YaST->Software Management.
    You can find it in the start menu under System->Remote Access.
