I use this all the time and it works at an acceptable rate.

I am interested to know if Freenx or !M are able to reproduce the functionality
that I get using vncserver as described in my previous post.

However I asked on the list some time ago if anyone could confirm that
they had got freenx or !M to make a connection to the native desktop on
a remote machine without any local user having logged in on the remote machine
locally, but I never had any confirmation that it was in fact possible or
that anyone had actually managed it.

This particular use for connection to a remote desktop is vital for me to
manage a remote machine where the local user there is non-computer literate.

I'd still like to hear from anyone who has done this.
