Default VNC and sound redirect

Hi,

At home I'm running FreeBSD 7.2 and have a tightvnc server set up.
From the office I'm using a couple of ssh tunnels to connect to my FreeBSD box at home using VNC.

I was wondering is there are a way to redirect the sound from the vncserver to the vncviewer directly? I've been Googling for this but didn't find any useful information.

Have someone tried and accomplished this?

Regards,
D

AFAIK, VNC doesn't support sound. You have to use the NX Client and NX Server if you want automatic sound and printer redirection. Or, setup a network sound server like NAS to send sound from the server to the remote client.
