Howto dispatching OSs over the Internet PDF Print E-mail
Set up a web server (e.g. Apache). For every desktop, create a web page including the following code:

<embed type="application/x-gtk-vnc" width="1024" height="768" host="ip.of.the.virtual.machine" port="5900"></embed>


Then create a web menu, so that just by clicking on the favourite Desktop, one can see it projected directly into the web page. This is just an example (it uses pictures as web links):

Install mozilla-gtk-vnc firefox plugin:
apt-get install mozilla-gtk-vnc


It is suggested to open multiple browser tabs for every desktop, thus making switching among desktops confortable.
