Not really, all I know of is FreeNX and VNC.
As for their refusal, is it out of pure ignorance that they don't wish
to support BSD? I thought they had at one time supported FreeBSD (the
assumption is based on the fact that it exists in the ports tree).
Too bad, though. I tested FreeNX on a debian install (unfortunately)
and the client ran smooth on my windows machine, with the unfortunate
exception that it has 0 dual-monitor support in fullscreen mode.
I found this though: http://www.deweyonline.com/nx/freebsd.html
Highly betting that the maintainer's page for this (if that is the
maintainer) that first section looks promising. The link works to
download the 6.2-RELEASE version. It's possible that might work with
X.Org versions later than 7.1; I haven't personally tested it myself.
Btw, which FreeBSD release are you running?
