hm, I checked it out, but there seams to me one major problem. If I 
start a session, the server opens a window wich is asking the server 
user if he wants to allow the session. But there wille be noone there. 
Exept of this it seams to work without problems in a lan. (Couldnt test 
it over the net.)

Now I found in the login screen, that there are diffrent session to 
choose. Shell, local login but also remote login with xdmcp. Coud this 
be an alternative, and what dos it concretly? I found with google  
somthing like x11 session over ssh. I dont understand the pros and cons 
right know, but do a x11 session over ssh, I personaly would prever?

Is this a good idea, cause it works with ssh, it seams secure, but I 
have no clue about the performance over the internet, ah did read this:

there seams also to exist a solution for vnc over ssh.

Are there any expiriance / hints with one of those solutions?
