Turn off the remote machines internal vnc desktop manager (if it's on).
Use the script I attached to an earlier posting to start an x11vnc
session on the remote machine.
Remember to make sure port 5900 is open to allow you to attach then
connect to the remote machine, you are actually now attached to the
same x11 session as you would be if you were using the keybaod and
mouse on the machine.
Do whatever you want to do.......
