    First answer: http://sourceforge.net/projects/vb4linux/
    maybe this one also http://www.linuxuser.co.uk/articles/...sual_Basic.pdf

    Those might help a little.

    The second answer is a little more complicated. When you say access do you mean to access the files on a drive? Use Samba. You can also remote control the windows box from the linux box using RealVNC.

    Does that work for you?

    Yes, and vice versa. It's the equivalent of PCAnywhere. VNC, although unencrypted, is a very nice remote control program, and the best part of it is that it's free.

    I can't think of the name of the encryption program but it's hosted on linux. It acts as a gateway for secure communication.
