    I am new to Linux and using CentOS 5, I have also installed GUI (GNOME) and working fine but I want to conect that PC from windows XP over LAN/WAN with GUI like in windows using Remote Desktop Connection to connecting to a windows server.

    I Can connect to the CentOS via Putty Utilites which support SSH from windows XP but I want to connect with GUI same as I use phisicaly PC using GNOME GUI.

    In simple word I want to connect to a Linux from a windows XP with GUI like Remote Desktop Connection between Windows.

    Can any one help on it?

    use vnc viewer.This will get you facility to view remotely via GUI.

    Also, you need to setup the linux machine to access Remotely. You can do the same by going through System >> Preferences >> Remote Desktop and allow the access to other computers and you can specify there a password also.
