Ssh not possible?  That's one of the most basic "requirements" and most easy to secure - typically....

XWindows of course, or numerous variants thereof.  I'm not sure but I *think* most of them use the Xwindows protocol on the network.

VNC may also work now.  There are also several versions of it (TightVNC, RealVNC, et al) There's a native VNC protocol/client as well as Java/http - maybe https...

There's probably someone that has written and httpd or Apache module that will simply pass I/O between a shell process on the box.  Maybe search the ports tree or of course google.

Hello all.

A friend is asking me to help him to solve some problem he has in his 
servers. To some I would be able to connect using ssh, with other 
just it i snot possible. I remember that on the windows world there 
was a commercial software PCANywhere. He can have it but I am not 
sure if I would be able to connect to that from my Freebsd machine 
(of course not by ssh).
What are you using for connecting to graphical interfaces of 
different OS's from FreeBSD?
I tested some years ago a VNC software but did not work fine with MAC 
OSX (recently released by then).
I know big security factors are involved for sure.
Any suggestion on what to use, not to expensive or free?

Thanks in advance
Jorge Biquez
