This will works in RHEL as well as CentOS since they are effectively the same thing.

At least I assume you want the gui brought up? If not, use Putty.

I doubt it's installed by default.

Oh yes i installed it and was able to run a KDE session remotely. However, i have these problems:
1) in the KDE session thru vnc, the toolbars dont come come. (like we have in windows on click of windows button). The toolbar is present when loggin in locally though.
2) on running a shell/terminal window from vnc KDE, the shortcut commands are not working...
like if i do a cd /ho and hit tab, it shd replace it with cd /home/
its not happening. Is there some setting to turn it on?
