Can I share any program in a network? Simple, eh?

Yes, it's a very simple question. I have a program that uses a dongle. I want to work with this prgram from a Network running linux from more than one PC, can I?
What are the limitation I got? It's a GUI program. Actually, the program is 3B2

Yes, you can. The only thing you need is to open a remote graphical session to the host machine. You can use VNC, which I think is included by default to almost all distros, or for example XWin, which is a Windows X server. If you need some assistance, just say :)

Ok, thanks. I am not going to try it now but I just want to make sure it's possible. So, if you are not sure 101% don't let me buy the software to find you are wrong ;-) What about the speed. Will it be reasonable?

You can try it w/o spending any money :) VNC is free, also XWin has a trial. The speed depends of course of the speed of the connection to the host. The best performance will be over LAN.

Yes, you can. If you mean to use a Linux program over network : there is VNC client for both Windows and Linux.
If you want to use Windows program over net - VNC server for Windows is also available, you can use also a lot of other programs - PC Anywhere for example.
