Hi Joshua, hi everybody
Thank you for your response.
It is really not a confidence problem. I think VNC is good for
controling and really nice for somethink like showing or teaching. And
using VNC means that if I want to do some job a graphical way while someone
is allready working on remote computer, this person should have to stop
his/her work. Some jobs have to be done a graphical way, especialy
configuration of some KDE software. For instance, I wnated to configure an
extra acount in kmail for the usual user to receive internal administrative
root mails. I tryed with the shell, editing ~/.kde/share/config/kmailrc but
of course, it did not work. Further more: the ADSL modem of the remote
computer is not set for remote control (I dont want it until now) and I
tryed to configure it with the shell using lynx... I discoved that it is
I look in the direction of X forwording in local commands like:
ssh -X -f root(a)ip.addr.of.server
But nothing is working.
I know that it could be possible to spye with X, just displaying a
user sceen without it's knowledge, but I dont want it. I allready have
acces to the financial files of this (distant) user!
I espected some one near KDE working group could help me... I continue
waiting for other positive responses. If an advanced KDE or X hacker
hesitate to put the response on a public list, he has just to say that ssh
and sshd must be well configured to be really secured, that's all.
I sent this mail to the list, too. Is that correct ?
