Is there any package for Ubuntu which allows me to connect to remote computer without disturbing or terminating others who have already connected to that server or who are accessing the computer directly?.

I remember I did this in Windows Server 2003 installing Terminal Server when I was doing my course which allowed multiple clients to connect to the server simultaneously with no disturbance to clients and even direct access to server.

Is there any package like this for Ubuntu desktops/Linux?

I agree that FreeNX is the best way to emulate a Terminal Server on Linux. Here is a good and easy to follow HowTo for not only setting it up on Ubuntu, but also securing it:

Hi!

Check out VNC. Here's a guide how to set it up:

No one of the wizards and genius above told you there is no disturbance for the other users connected remotely or to the user connected locally to the desktop, because Linux is a multitasking, multiuser and multi-everything system where it is ab-so-lu-te-ly obvious to connect without disturbing each other.

For a user who ever worked with a VNC server on a Windows host, it is not the case. So it is not so obvious that VNC servers on Ubuntu do not suffer the same limitation.

Well, I am glad to say to Thyagaraj03 that both solutions above will allow you to connect several users to an Ubuntu VNC/freenx server without disturbing each other.
