sudo reboot, be harsh in a cruel world
Authored by: WAW401 on Jun 18, '03 06:55:42PM
there is ... use VNC to control the GUI remotely. for the few times I really need GUI access to my server remotely, it's perfect. For security's sake, don't add a firewall rule to open the port. Tunnel the connection through ssh from the machine you're sitting on ... ssh -L 5900:localhost:5900 remote_ip_or_dns

Then use localhost & port 5900 in your vnc client. You can have the remote machine always running the vnc server, or run it from the ssh shell.

Of course, if you go this route, isntalling via the CLI is pointless since you can just do it via the GUI.
