Probably. But I use one VNC setup for remote control of the Myth session
and a second to provide a persistent remote desktop. I'm sure there are
other ways to get all this working but VNC is relatively easy, I can use it
for both cases, and I have clients for Windows, Linux and my iPhone (and
another plus is that I can use the same clients to control Windows
machines). VNC has security issues so I don't use for external access, but
it works pretty well locally.
