Unhappy xsession taking full t1 bandwidth

i'm using Red Hat Enterprise the problem i having is this server runs a monitor program that brings realtime data back to it vi radios and the machine sets in a different location off site so i use a neoware box linux thin client to connect to the server through a T1 i found after being logged into the server for awhile the server is taking full T1 bandwidth and going through the firewall to sniff it out and found its coming from the server and its xsession seems to take all the bandwidth . i'm thinking could this be a config problem.

Would you consider using TightVNC? I use it all the time to connect to remote servers (and clients too!) and it gives me a nice X-windows session without using too much bandwidth.

Are you pulling the realtime data thru to you from the server in realtime, or just monitoring the server's status? That in itself could slog your bandwidth, if you are pulling the data down in realtime...

If you just need to monitor server status, open an SSH session and: tail -f /var/log/messages (as root, of course)

Just my .02 Hope this helps!
