View Full Version : VNC Linux to Windows

1st December 2011, 19:01
OMG. The forum is fighting me. It just overwrote my post. x(

We have a Red Hat Linux machine running a QT Application.

We have a Windows XP machine running a windows-only application.

We're trying to find ways to embed access to the windows-only application into our QT app.

Right now we're using VNCViewer on the Linux machine, but we can't embed that into our QT application, but at least we have access, right?

So... is there any way to get access to a windows-only application on a Windows machine into a linux machine QT application? Any suggestions would be definitely appreciated.

Hrm. Now that I think about it, it doesn't have to be VNCViewer that we care about, but just some way to get access to the Windows-only application on the Windows computer, embedded into our Linux machine QT app

First of all you can integrate VNC client in your app using something like LibVNCServer/LibVNCClient (http://libvncserver.sourceforge.net/), another way is what I have played with long time ago - pass window content from Windows to Linux and control events back. There was also an implementation of "seamless RDP" - http://www.cendio.com/seamlessrdp/, maybe you can try to embedded it in your app. Some additional reading RemoteApp (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RemoteApp#RemoteApp). FreeRDP team implemented RemoteApp stuff under Apache license, so it can be used in non-open source app, more info http://www.freerdp.com/wiki/doku.php?id=remoteapp.
