Hi Nils

 From my server I need to ssh into 6 other servers - I use
<ssh -l root 10.###.###.### -X>
to gain console access, and then run routines like
to add new students to a server, etc. The question was directed at 
finding out how to turn console into the remote desktop, so I can then 
push a chosen desktop background to all users using the "Push new 
icons..." desktop icon... Is this doable this way?
Thanks for helping
