just curious... why? I mean, why do you want to load one GUI to view another? If you have to use files on another, you can use SSH or FTP, or CVS or SVN. If you want to make config changes, command line is most efficient.

Use VNC through an SSL tunnel.

on the host:
Code:
vncserver :1
on the client:
Code:
ssh -X -l username IPaddress -p portnr
then
Code:
vncviewer IPaddrs:1
---
if you are under a firewall, you can pass through using reverse SSH...
