I need a remote control software for Sun Solaris.  I can't use an X Window application
 because it opens the window as a remote display not a console session.  I need something
in the Solaris world  that works similar to VNC or Teamviewer.  Help!!  This is for a potential
client & I can't close the deal until my techs can access that desktop.

VNC server also exists for Solaris, but it doesn't give you a console session either.

Most Sun/Oracle hardware has a built-in remote management board (RSC, ILOM, ALOM, ...). When properly configured, it will allow remote access to the console.

X manger you can use to take remote GUI session.  and Server console you can connet any of one RSC, ILOM, ALOM.

These is free software to provide the remote console. you may require H/W and software to get the remote console.
