I think we've been down this path before, where I've suggested the ssh route and 
Les has pointed out the simpler and therefore more elegant vnc route.;-) I just 
tried the vncviewer method on my K12LTSP 3.0.1 box (the server is my desktop), 
but it says it doesn't recognize the -via option.  What version is required for 
that option?
