Our company is limited in web browsing(security reason), only a few IP can connect to the internet.

so I need prepare a server, let user using this server for web browsing.

only one person can use it at a time, And I want the users can login this server remotely and concurrently.

Current I use VNC server, only one user can use at a time, What are other solutions? remote login and start a new X client?

X11 is specifically designed for this, no need to deal with VNC. The easiest would be to use LTSP

You can run as many VNC servers at once as your system has resources to handle.

Yes, you can run a separate desktop on each VNC server, and run each one as a different user. – Code Duck Feb 2 '10 at 6:02
I have 10 user and this server is my working PC and I have a virtualbox running... so I need login and logout. – linjunhalida Feb 2 '10 at 6:05
I need evaluate this solution first, and then I can ask a standalone PC for this job. – linjunhalida Feb 2 '10 at 6:05
