Heads up on tight vnc - our experience is that with tight vnc, unlike vnc, if you need to reboot the machine remotely, even if the back-ground server is bought up as a service, you cannot log on again remotely, the session password seems to get corrupted somehow, requiring resetting, which require being at the console. -- This is not a problem with vnc.
