PROBLEM: Need to access a remote desktop when VNC is not allowed on the network.

SOLUTION: Use the command:

user@linux # X :1 -query [IP Address Here]

EXAMPLE:

Create the following script:

 #!/bin/sh
/usr/X11R6/bin/X -query 192.168.1.254

Save it as remote.sh and make it executable:

user@linux # chmod +x remote.sh
