Subject: [DNG] Remote two-way sound?

I don't know if I'm just overlooking something obvious, but I can't think of
the answer...

Does anyone know of a remote access mechanism which supports two-way sound?

I've deliberately worded that slightly vaguely, because I'd be happy with a
remote desktop sharing system such as RDC / VNC where the remote machine has a
desktop of its own which I'm just manipulating remotely, or with remote
application access such as X server / client, where the remote machine is just
running the application without a grphical display of its own, and sending the
application windows back to me.

Basically I want the application to be running on a remote machine, which I 
can access from my X-window Linux machine (where my preferred environment is 
KDE).    Everything is running Linux (in fact Devuan); I'm not trying to do 
anything cross-platform.

The requirement is that I need to run applications expecting to have access to
microphone and speakers, and those are on my local machine, not the remote one
running the application/s.

Bandwidth is not a problem - the machines are on a gigabit LAN; I'm not trying
to do this over the Internet.

If (just in case, I have no idea) it makes things any easier, I can easily run
the application in a virtual machine on the remote computer, or on the native
physical hardware.

Any ideas?
