Application Serving

Hi, I'm fairly new to UNIX and am looking at the potential of using UNIX servers as Application Servers (similar to what is done by Citrix Metaframe and Terminal Services in windows) does anyone know whether this is possible or am I firing in the dark?

Thanks.

There are several ways to do this.

You can use X Window's native X terminal ability or you can use a third party solution like TightVNC (which is free, BTW) which is more like the WTS that you are used to.

In X Window, it is possible to execute the app on a remote server and have the graphical output display on your local machine. A little research should turn up the solutions that you desire.
