Remote Desktop Through Ssh


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am desperately trying to make the full transition into the Linux world from Windows and I have encountered some hurdles along the way that I am trying to overcome. I am currently attempting, yet again, another transition into Ubuntu which I find to be the most suitable for my needs.

I installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my home desktop and installed openssh which is operational and I can connect to from the internet. Additionally, I configured vnc which is a obviously outdated and slow. Ultimately, I would like to use OpenSSH to establish a secure method to view my Gnome Desktop remotely. Unfortunately, I do not know the proper verbiage to properly research and my findings and attempts thus far have been a complete failure.

Are there any step-by-step guides that can hold my hand through the process so I can develop a more detailed understanding of how this works? Again, I really need to know what my next step should be to get this working after SSH is operational which it is. How is the "gnome gui" session initiated? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
