Re(1): Secure remote access to your desktop

You can get very decent performance with VNC over ssh if you use compression. For example, you can use a line like this to connect you your computer:

ssh -C -L 5902: -p 16949 -l remote1776

The -C parameter specifies to use compression. The 5902: part maps your local host port to your remote machine. The rest I think is obvious. Once that is done, all you have to do is run the tightvnc client poniting it to your local host's 02 port, like this:

That should give you a fast, encrypted connection to your remote machine using plain ssh and vnc. Try it.
