Abstract

Logging in to a Unix system from a console typically initiates a graphical desktop environment that is similar to the Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh desktops. Logging in remotely to a Unix system, however, typically limits the user to a small text-only window, which is unable to launch graphical applications. This appendix describes the two main options for overcoming this obstacle: a Virtual Network Computer (VNC) and the X Window System.
