Since you donot mention any platform, I can tell you it is possible with vnc on
linux and roughly all unix variants. Details for RedHat are on
http://www.sourcecodecorner.com/articles/vnc/linux.asp , most unix sysadmins can
translate that to their unix. I've it working on linux and HP-UX.
If you happen to use M$Windows on the server side, I don't think vnc will suit
your need, there it only can show the console or desktop.
