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 ?

I do not thing using just ssh could be a solution to
this. Well, unless if
you find an application that provides a GUI to the ssh connection, but
will not give you the feel as if you are in front of it. As far as I
know, SSH is used or initilzied through the konsole.
My advice to this is to use VNC.. Try to googling about it. It'll give you
the actual desktop. The only draw back there is that the user on that
"distant PC" that you want to use will think as if his desktop is thinking
for himself, since he/she can actually see there that you are controlling
his/her desktop. hehehehe
