I would like to ask if what is the best software to use in order for me to access unix box (AIX and Solaris) console through my PC.  An xwindow.  I am looking for a free software that I can download from the web.

This would be a big help for me because my servers are very far from me and I am only accesing them remotely.

I recommend RealVNC from http://www.realvnc.com. It does require software to be installed on the server but the great thing about VNC is that you can leave commands running on the server if you have to disconnect from it.
