Thank you very much for your reply . According to your message , the minicom
is not suitable in this regard as I really want remote desktop access to my
CentOS client located at far site and thus get its keyboard & mouse control
to issue commands and view Gui . Please do me favor and propose for the
solutions that can enable my CentOS server at the office to get remote
desktop access of my CentOS client far at the site (the only connections
that can be made is through modem dialup connections) .
Let me thank you in advance
