Exporting GUI console


Is it possible to export the console display to my desktop?

I'm running Exceed 14.x the console is RHEL 5.6 running gnome.

I know how to export my display in an individual putty session and run whatever x app I need, but would like to be able to export the console session to my desktop also.

When I see console, I think terminal windows, which would just be an SSH/Putty session, so I assume you mean the entire graphic display. There are a few tools to perform this function. The most common would be VNC, but you need to be careful as it is not secure by default and should be tunneled over an SSH connection. Another common application would be FreeNX, which is secure by default using SSH like encryption by default.
