what about Xvnc, an X server that displays to vnc? (same way Xnest is
an x server that as a client displays on another x server).
the way i understand it you could have lots of people, all with their
own sessions, displaying remotely by vnc, on this single box by using
course, at this point your windows box is the 'vnc server', and
probably isnt multi-user, and you still havnt found a good term
programme for linux to make any of above relevant. :)
personally, i think minicom is pretty good. the admin can create
multiple configs and give them names, so i can do:
and hey presto. it also takes of locking, has a 'help bar' at the
bottom, and works a lot better if you start it with -m (then exit
becomes meta+x rather than alt+z,x). color support is nice too, if
the terminal you're using supports it too.
but you dont like minicom. :)
