Most likely, you do not have to configure anything. But just in
(I'm assuming both computer's are running linux/unix).
1) make sure sshd is installed and running on the REMOTE machine.
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd status
2) On the LOCAL machine, use ssh to connect to the REMOTE machine.
# ssh username@remotemachine
3) You should now be in a shell on the remote machine, try running a
few graphical programs.
# xeyes & (this is a good quick test)
# xterm &
# mozilla &
ssh is your friend.
