Hi Faisal -
This is in the FAQ - is this what you were asking?
Q. Can I remote the normal X display of my workstation in the same way as
the Windows server does?
It would be possible to add VNC support to a standard X server, so that it
operated this way, but we have no plans to do so. We tend to run all our X
sessions as VNC sessions and only use the local X server to run the viewer.
It's very fast when on the same machine as the server! If you feel that it's
overkill to run two X servers on the same machine, you might consider Ganesh
Varadarajan's svgalib-based viewer, available from the contribs page.
