SSH (or it's GNU cousin http://violet.ibs.com.au/openssh/ ) is the way
Download and read the instructions. You need to install the thing on
both machines, run the daemon part on the machine you want to access and
the client on the one to do the controlling.
After installtion you then generate the encryption keys, copy the public
key to the controllers trusted file then have at it. On thing that I
found kind of confusing is the when you launch and X application in the
"telnet-like" ssh terminal it does not launch the X app INSIDE the
window, instead it launches it as a seperate app on the controllers X
sessions - so therefore you must BE in X to run any remote X apps.
Should'a been clear to me but I just had a brain fart about it.
Study up on it with the instructions first.
