Here is a short list of applications that can be used.
1) VNC (Virtual Network Computing) is a remote display system which allows the user to view the desktop of a remote machine anywhere on the internet. It can also be directed through SSH for security.
Basically you install VNC server on the server and install client on your local PC. Setup is extremely easy and server is very stable. On client side, you can set the resolution and connect to IP of VNC server. It can be a bit slow compared to Windows remote desktop and also has the tendency to take more time refreshing over low-bandwidth links. All in all VNC is an amazing piece of free software that gets the job done.
There is RealVNC , TightVNC and UltraVNC. Each has it’s advantages and disadvantages. Most popular one is RealVNC but if you’re upto it, experiment with all three and choose the one that works for you best. By default, communication between client and server is in clear text on port 5900. However, you can easily route all traffic via SSH tunnel. Here is a quick way of setting it up if you have access to command line shell:
ssh -ND 5900 <user>@remote.server.com
When you get prompted, enter your password. Pop open VNC client and connect to ‘localhost’. This’ll route your connection to VNC server on remote machine.
You can download VNC from:

  1. http://www.realvnc.com/download.html
  2. http://www.tightvnc.com/download.html
  3. http://www.uvnc.com/
2) Then there is FreeNX. FreeNX is a system that allows you to access your desktop from another machine over the internet. You can use this to login graphically to your desktop from a remote location. One example of its use would be to have a FreeNX server set up on your home computer, and graphically logging in to the home computer from your work computer, using a FreeNX client. It provides near local speed application responsiveness over high latency, low bandwidth links.
FreeNX can be configured to run via SSH without any tunneling. It binds to your existing SSH install. Instead of guiding you through the installation of FreeNX in this article, you can visit the following URLs that’ll guide you through the installation on Ubuntu:
  1. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeNX
  2. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=97277&highlight=freenx
  3. http://freenx.berlios.de/ (FreeNX homepage)
3) The third free application is 2X Terminal Server for Linux. 2X TerminalServer for Linux is an Open Source project, licensed under the GPL and is free of charge. As far as performance goes, NoMachine’s technology is on par with Windows’ own Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) suite, better than VNC. Both X2 and FreeNX is based on NoMachine technology.
Here are some quick links if you’re interested in using this software:
  1. Download at http://www.2x.com/terminalserver/download.htm
  2. Forum is at http://www.2x.com/forums
4) The last but not least at all is XDMCP. The X Display Manager Control Protocol uses UDP port 177. Compared to the list above, it’s not as easy to setup for remote desktop but it’s the original way of doing this on Linux. You can get setup instructions and other tips in the following URL:
  1. http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/XDMCP-HOWTO/intro.html
In conclusion, there are many commercial products that are available as well. But this article is only based on open source products that can be freely used with no strings attached.

burning a live cd (any linux live cd, puppy!) the kernel will autodetect all your drivers, after the boot, there is an icon on the desktope named "connect", (only in puppy linux), and there you can try to connect, and plus you can see all the infos about your wirless driver ;)

Doesnt seem to recognize hardware


I had the same problem, but due to legal issues there won't be any linksys drivers available for linux any time soon. What i did was to sell mine and buy a different one with full compatibility with both windows and linux.

Ubuntu 8.10 wont detect my wireless card


You can try looking in the manufacturer website to see if they have made a driver for Linux. Actually, most Linux distros have a nice set of drivers, but not all hardware out there have good Linux support.Surprisingly, Ubuntu 8.10 detected one CompUSA USB wireless adapter for which they don't have the XP drivers.

Remote access


Yes it is. You can use the vnc server and client utilities for this. Install VNC server on all the linux pcs. Then install the windows version of vnc on the pc you want to connect FROM.

Give the ip address of the linux pc you wish to connect to, and lo, you get the same desktop that is on the linux pc. Of course you can configure password protection.

Another easy but techie way to connect is with telnet or ssh command after enabling these services on the linux pc.

Is there any driver for linux for this product-DWL-G510 Wireless G Desktop Adapter......?if so do i get its source code?


A quick Google search suggests that there are at least three different versions of the DWL-G510 and that Rev B might work with the madwifi drivers. Otherwise, you may want to consider using ndiswrapper with the Windows drivers. I've had good luck with ndiswrapper.

Can't connect to internet by using LINKSYS Wireless-G card


I am assuming you have a dual boot machine meaning it runs either linux or windows and not both at the same time. Linux on the other hand may not configure the card automatically and as you should consider changes to the laptop in terms of configuration and devices are actually changes to two computers the windows computer and the linux computer. You probably did some configuration for windows to enable the wireless card (if there was no encryption windows may have done it for you). Linux on the other hand may not recognose and configure the card automatically and as you should consider changes to the laptop in terms of configuration and devices are actually changes to two computers the windows computer and the linux computer. The many flavors of linux also have almost as many means to configure devices. In order to assist you I will need to know which distribution and version of linux you are using. I will also need to know the manufacturer and model (possibly number and not description) of the wireless adapter to be configured. Warning this may be easy and in other cases it may not be and I have access to few linux distributions to experiment with.
