i have a few fedora core 6 machines. isn't there a command you can run that allows you to remote into a fedora box? i thought it was similar to rsh, but so you're using gnome on the remote machine.

You can use SSH to remote in thro the console..
Or VNC if you want the GUI....

is it only VNC to get the GUI? I thought there was something to run in a console to remote into a fedora machine through X so you have a GUI interface.

you can setup a remote X session, but because it is unencrypted, it is disabled by default.

Howerver, I have successfully set up such a session using the howto below:
