    Hi Olibs,

    Yes, you can access your ubuntu via your mobile, condition it has many things.. firstly you need to have a cgi application like terminal hosted somewhere, I have a reason for this, N95 uses Symbian 9.2 which is java based but not really compatible with reference to binary packaging of linux (man, I am genius )!!! then you need to disable firewall of the router where your ubuntu desktop is, using 'sshd', google it for more info about 'sshd', it is really vast to study sshd and its functionalities, but using it, you can access your files and folders. However, you cannot go ahead with startx or gui!!!
    Practically it is difficult but not impossible!!!
    It will require lot of tweaking and lot of hardwork...
    If you ready to do so, lets start the mission!
