x11vnc works great, I've got a couple hundred of them running on 
xubuntu.  If you want to start it automatically when you start your 
computer, put the following into the file: 

[Desktop Entry]



Exec=x11vnc -forever



For your Windows end I would use RealVNC's viewer, it is really nice 
these days and available free from their website: http://realvnc.com.  
Be sure to open port 5900 on your server computer's firewall.
