Thanks Pablo.

If I understand, essentially you are saying:

1) Don't use KDE with VNC
2) Use an ssh tunnel

I'm not sure it's practical for use to not use KDE. For instance,
we're using KDE and we have Windows VMs running. We need to link up
and view what's going on in VMs at both locations. We cannot stop the
VM, switch environments and then restart.

As for the ssh tunnel, that is an attractive idea but I wonder if it
provides any better performance?

Anyway, thanks for the inputs.
