-X option will allow X forwarding. from a local X system you can open X applications and they will display locally. not sure what you're trying to achieve really...

ah, yes, i must be thinking of vnc. all i have is the server address (eno.eecs.ku.edu), my user name, and password, so i assume i'd need more for vnc..like a port#, and perhaps they don't even allow vnc..well, i just found out about the konqueror fish:// method, so i'm happy, but breaking out a remote desktop would be fun.
thanks for all the responses.
