This one, but it's a commercial product:
It used to run pretty well on Windows and their support was great.
I dunno whether Mono is supported in the meanwhile.
BTW, before using remoting for something productive, you should
read Ingo's FAQ (the author of the Bidir-channel):
You'll probably find out that some of those fancy remoting
features don't make sense in all contexts.
