6 A lot of people have answered already, but you may be interested to know
7 the current linux release of skype lets you share part or all
8 of your desktop. It's view only, and it replaces the webcam stream with
9 your desktop - pretty neat.
11 For 2-way desktop interaction we often use vnc. Use a vnc server and
12 client capable of the tight extensions, and don't forget to use them:
13 vncviewer -encodings tight host
14 or
15 vncviewer -via somehost -encodings tight localhost
16 would ssh via somehost. Use localhost if you can ssh directly to the
17 box, or the actual hostname accessible via 'somehost' if you have to go
18 via a gateway.
20 I use net-misc/tightvnc. If you can ssh to the box, you can vnc to it.
21 You could run skype as well just for the audio.
23 HTH,
