Here's what I'd like to do, I brand new to fedora and a user of mac
x for the last 8 years (since OSX first came out), I've heard that
fedora is not as virus hungry as windows. I've got a windows machine
thats 2 years old and would like to see the desktop of the pc on my
mac as well as filesharing and complete control of the headless PC... any good, simple instructions out there for doing this? Thank you....
and if fedora isn't suited for this, can someone tell me? Jeff
Fedora has 2 options to share it's screen with Macs or PCs...

freenx or VNC

The client applications for freenx are available from and the client applications for VNC are
available from (the Mac
version is called something like Chicken of the VNC).

installation of freenx is something like 'yum install freenx-server'
the generally vnc server application is automatically installed ('yum
install vncviewer' for the client).

Instructions on configuration of freenx-server and vnc server are
available via google.


So, Craig, if I understand you correctly, all I need is the "Client
application" of either of these to screenshare on my mac? (looking at
my mac's monitor and seeing the pc)? Jeff
well - sort of...the clients are free to download for your Mac (Chicken
of the VNC or nx-client)

The server must be setup (in the case of freenx, it must be installed
and then set up).

FreeNX is a bit slicker, faster, better. VncServer is already installed
on your computer and all you need to do is configure it.


Ok, the magic word... configure. How do I do this? (a newbie here) J
