I need to connect to Linux computers from remote. I am using LogMeIn for windows PCs. But it doesn't have client for Linux boxes.

I have tried Team Viewer, but seems very heavy.

Is there any other solution for this??

Most people just use SSH, and X11 forwarding when needed for admin stuff. – Zoredache May 17 '12 at 7:27
Arun, please don't take this amiss, but you have a number of answered questions for which you have accepted no answer. Could you perhaps go back through them and accept some of them? It will improve your accept rate, and drives SF's reputation system. – MadHatter May 17 '12 at 9:16

One of the VNC client variants would be a good choice. There are several forks, I use TightVNC but YMMV.

NoMachine (NX Free Edition in 3.5.0) for Linux will let you access Linux boxes. On your local desktop you'll need to install their client: NoMachine Player (NX Client 3.5.0). They also just released NoMachine for remote access to Windows PCs and Macs.

Either try using vnc (x11vnc or something) if you need the whole desktop, or ssh with X forwarding (ssh -X) to forward just one window/app.
