Remote administration

Hi I am using openSuse 11.1 my home PC is with windows xp, my question is there a program like TeamViewer in Lunux and for xp, so I can use my home pc from the suse?

i have idea what TeamViewer is or what it does…so ???

you do, so look here for something that does what you want:

and, always google:


I can’t figure out if TeamViewer is VNC-based or RDP-based or a mixture. It seems to have both behaviours, like file sharing is also found in VNC and remote assistance is reminiscent of RDP.

Anyway, to your question: you could look at RDP and VNC in Linux, here are some home pages:
TightVNC: VNC-Based Free Remote Control Solution
rdesktop: A Remote Desktop Protocol client

and here are some implementation tutorials for openSUSE:
TightVNC (VNC Xvnc) on openSUSE as Client or Server (Remote Desktop Connections)
Windows Linux RDP Remote Desktop Connections using openSUSE as Client or Server (terminal server)
