How to do remote administration using the GUI

You can run the GUI locally and Linuxconf remotely. The command line is

    remadmin --exec link_command linuxconf --guiproto

Ideally, you will want encryption between the two machines. The best solution is to use ssh. So you will do

    remadmin --exec ssh -l account linuxconf --guiproto

This is very efficient and will allow you to use the GUI to administer boxes running on very slow (or congested links). All this fully encrypted.
