Ask Slashdot: Remote application access

taikedz writes "Citrix Xenapp with Receiver/Metaframe allows publishing individual applications installed on a Windows server to users on remote machines. These applications open in their own windows, along side others as if they were installed locally. I am looking to do the same at home, with free software, publishing applications from Mac, Linux, and Windows machines (and yes, I've verified the license agreements for the apps I am going to do this with!). Up until now, the only alternatives I have found are full-on remote desktop login, not seamlessly-intergrated.

Can the Slashdot community recommend any tools that can achieve the goal of remote individual application access across platforms for free or at low-cost?"

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

Linux is easy enough (1)

I'd do it using SSH for Linux, BSD, or anything else where the application is in X11 and I can run SSH.

ssh -X user@host command

("Obviously", replace "command" with what you want to run, and "user@host" with appropriate identifiers.)
