thank you very much, it is what I was looking for!!
Understand that VNC allows one to view/control a remote computer's X session. Had tried and is working fine in #!.
Also used ssh for copying file to/from a remote computer, in shell.
But can I ssh into a remote computer and start a X session (e.g. starting firefox and surf using the net)
How to do it?
Also read from the net that the local computer's firefox can use the ssh server as a proxy to surf the net so that all the traffic is encrypted (e.g. when at Starbuck). Any idea how this can be done?
Thanks in advance for the info.
Is it possible to tunnel VNC through SSH to make it more secure? If so, how would you go about doing this? Edit: I assume this would be similar to tunneling Firefox through SSH.

# sudo apt-get install vino
Like the horizon, I am more of a concept than a corporeal being.
