remote control via network
Posted on 2001-07-31
I am completely new to linux, but I have a sparepc that I can use, but do not have enough space for 2 monitors etc.
Is it possible to takeover a linux screen via a network, before being logged in in linux?
What I am thinking of is a pc that has no connections (no monitor, no mouse, no keyboard) except for the network, just hitting the power switch, then connect via Windows2000 to the linux via a network remote software (which?) and login in linux, of course linux will have to accept this connection at the login prompt because there is no keyboard, so no one can press ok.
Is this possible, or do I need to consider other possibilities, or has anyone done something similar with a better approach?
Any comments and feedback is greatly appreciated.
