Re: [Evolution] Multiple instances of evolution

I use VNC a lot for this, but if I were starting over, I'd seriously
think about putting my time into FreeNX.

Anyway, with VNC I can see the same desktop from both my offices, from
home, and in any old 802.11b hotspot I can connect to from my PalmOne
Tungsten C, which has a half-power 802.11b radio in it.

Changes made from one of those places, are reflected in all the others.
You can, at your option, have VNC close all other clients when a new one
is established, or have all of them remain open concurrently.

However, out of the box, VNC is an insecure protocol - it's subject to
replay attacks, and probably MITM attacks as well.  It's important to
combine it with ssh or zebedee or OpenVPN or IPSEC or PPTP or something,
to keep people from being able to sniff everything you do, including
entering passwords.

I often use ssh or zebedee for linux<->linux connections, and PPTP
+OpenVPN for Palm<->linux connections.

Essentially, I want to be able to start up evolution on my machine at
work, go home, and then be able to ssh into my machine at work and have
evolution come up on my X session at home.

What happens instead is, evolution will open up another evolution window
on the initial display.

From what I have read the same thing would happen if you started two X
sessions as the same user on the machine locally as well. It seems to
have something to do with oafd.

Does anyone know if there is a work around for this? What exactly is the
reason for why this doesn't work?

You could close Evo before you go home...

Or use VNC.
