I'm looking for a way to control two computers running ubuntu through one computer. I have the following setup.

1. (Computer A - Laptop) Primary laptop running windows XP Version 2002 service pack 2. I also run Ubuntu 10.10 laptop edition through Virtual Box

2. (Computer B - Laptop) Secondary laptop running windows vista. Similar to above, I run Ubuntu 9.10 through virtual box.

3. (Computer C - Desktop) This one is an HP desktop running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

I'm currently using to access 'Computer B' in Windows to gain full control over the laptop which I'm sure isn't the best method.

I want to be able to do the following:

Use Ubuntu in Computer A to fully control Computer C which is running Ubuntu. I also want to be able to use Computer A to fully control Ubuntu in computer B.

All computer are within the same proximity.

Thank you.
