Is there any package for Ubuntu which allows me to connect to remote computer without disturbing or terminating others who have already connected to that server or who are accessing the computer directly?.

I remember I did this in Windows Server 2003 installing Terminal Server when I was doing my course which allowed multiple clients to connect to the server simultaneously with no disturbance to clients and even direct access to server.

Is there any package like this for Ubuntu desktops?

Yes. Ubuntu by default support VNC. Try using Terminal Server or Remote Desktop Viewer.

NOMACHINE could be the best choice as it has a feature which doesn't reveal what a remote user is doing on and won't disturb other users who have already connected to it. In ubuntu nomachine is packaged as FreeNX

Thanks!

sudo apt-get install rdesktop

This will work natively with windows as it uses the same protocols. This is to connect from Linux to a windows server.

If you want to connect to the Linux server from other computers using vnc would be worth investigating.

sudo apt-get install vnc4server

VNC is dam slow and other can easily look and take control –  user3215 Mar 30 '11 at 16:03
    
FreeNX is also a good product to check out. Not included in the repositories, but could be easier to use. –  nelaar Mar 31 '11 at 6:29
