I'm evaluating Sun Global Desktop as a remote connectivity solution. One thing that is not clear to me is this. When the user connects through SGD he gets a local X session and he runs his application on whatever remote machine he wants to use.
For the sake of this question let's say that the remote machines run Solaris and the PC at home is running windows or Linux.
What if he had an existing X session on a specific machine? Would it be possible to forward/redirect that to that he can see it remotely?
The scenario is this: user left his machine logged in with a running X session at the office. He's at home, he can connect and run new programs but he has no access to the existing X session at the office, he can see the processes but not their windows, etc.
