Enable Remote Control


I was wondering if anyone can advise of an easier way to enable remote control in CentOS.

I want to be able to access my CentOS box not only through SSH but also via remote where ever I am location wise.

Of course this is after I vpn into our corporate network which will enable me to access my box internal to my office LAN.

Thanks!

I don't understand: you can ssh into a machine from anywhere on the planet.... define 'remote not ssh' ??

Sorry. I want to remote (i.e. vnc, rdp) into my CentOS box.

I already can ssh to my box fine, what I'm hoping to do is to remote control my box and see my actual Desktop gui.

Can you please advise?

Thanks!

Got this running.

I installed vncviewer and that took care of what I need.

Thanks!
