I forgot to mention that it does need to have some portions of WINE
installed; to do this; of course, you're right...

: Gabor, I think a writer that would sum up VNC with
:
: "WinVNC is strictly for techies with a masochistic bent"
:
: is going to miss a lot of things...:)

: Interestingly enough,  pcAnywhere has asymmetric support but has
: soft-pedaled it.  They developed   Java and an ActiveX clients in 1997
which
: were put onto their CDs - and they have since done zero development.
AFAIK,
: they still distribute the ActiveX/Java clients on every CD.
:
: Timbuktu, in contrast, requires a client - a "light" one, but a
preinstalled
: client nonetheless.  This makes them relatively unusual in the field since
: Citrix, Windows Terminal Services, and PCI NetSupport as a comparison all
: offer ActiveX client controls which can be downloaded R/T from the server
: into IE an even I believe Konqueror on Linux. (Could someone set me
straight
: on the last? I understand Konqueror has ActiveX support implemented, but
I'm
: not sure how far it goes).
:
: <plug id=Tier6 type=shameless>
: FYI, anyone who has to connect to a variety of systems remotely may be
: interested in taking a look at the Tier6 package I put together.  It only
: works on platforms with Internet Explorer 5+ supporting ActiveX :( at
: present.  It allows rapid integrated connections via IP to VNC, Citrix,
: pcAnywhere, Windows Terminal Services, and PCI NetSupport hosts.  The URL

: : Thanks for this posting. However the article misses the #1 pro for vnc
in
: : my mind, that it is asymmetrical. The remote machine doesn't need any
: : particular software, just a web browser. Only the controlled machine
needs
: : to run vnc. Can any of the commercial packages do that? (Maybe they can
: and
: : the article missed that too?)
