    If your inquiring how to remote to a linux box from another linux box then:

    First, install the ssh server: sudo apt-get install openssh-server

    Next, edit the file /etc/ssh/ssh_config making sure they contain the following lines:

    ForwardAgent yes
    ForwardX11 yes
    ForwardX11Trusted yes

    Now open /etc/ssh/sshd_config and make sure the following line is in that config file:

    X11Forwarding yes

    On the client machine (machine your using to remote into the linux host) launch terminal and type:

    ssh -X [email]user_name@the_server_IP_or_hostname.domain[/email]ame

    Accept the RAS key and enter your password.

    You should now be able to see your desktop.

    Best reason to use ssh -x is because the graphic rendering job is done at your client so the data to transfer through the network is not huge.
