ssh to the x-server with xwin32 ...

FreeBSD runs with the command:

xterm -fn 6x13 -sb -ls -display & /usr/local/bin/startxfce4

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
