    Connection to an existing X session

    Mandrake 10.1 I that runs Xorg!

    A) Is there a way to connect remotely to an existing session?
    B) Is there a way to start remotely an app using ssh to "target system" and redirect the graphical interface to an existing session of "target system" ?

    Not sure what you are trying to do. I know you can export your X display to a remote computer.

    maybe for A) you might want to look at VNC (but I'm not 100% sure)

    I tried exporting my display to the remote computer, it worked, but it is not what I wanted. If I connect using ssh export display and then start the application 2 things occur:
    1) the application will close as soon as I close the session
    2) I will not get the display I want if I start the application locally and then connect remotely.

    Concerning vnc: Vnc server satrt a new session. What I want is to connect to the existing one. To be exact: I run an X seesion locally at :0 . I do not wish a new session on :1, I want to connect to the :0 session.

    I found on the internet the I can configure xorg for that job by loading module I did it, the logs seem to load that module when xorg starts, but the result isn't the desired. When I use a vnc from a remote machine to join session :0 I fail !!!

    I solved my problem by loading the xf4vnc module in xorg
