At home, I was implement one Ubuntu Box for the P2P file sharing. All the time if need to access my box either ssh in text mode or use the VNC to remote that i found it very slow until can’t do anything. But I have other way to access my ubuntu box by using the below command. But so far only work on my Mac, if I can find the way how to use in window will let you know.
[icon name="code" class="" unprefixed_class=""] ssh -X -C -c blowfish username@linuxbox gnome-panel
