Not to the best of my knowledge, however if the server is 2000 or 2003, you can enable Remote Desktop/Terminal Services in Administration mode and then use RDesktop to connect remotely (www.rdesktop.org).  And of course, there's always the various versions of VNC.

It depends on what version of pcanywhere is running on the windows box. Up to date versions can be controlled by any java based webbrowser - mozilla on linux would qualify for that.

No, PcAnywhere doesn't have Linux version.

For other solution, leew already mentioned them.
Those two solutions come with most of Linux distrubution.

For VNC, you get download for Windows:

owensleftfoot, Interesting, how would I go about doing this. Would I just type in the servers ip addy and then a special port #. I'm going to go look for some documentation on the Symantec site. But your response would be great to. Thank you.
