Another handy option might be to use vncserver/vncviewer to run the 
remote machine over the network.  You can also optionally connect 
through an ssh connection if you're trying to avoid the prying eyes 
of tcpdump etc. :

Remote Machine:
$ vncserver :1

Local Machine:
$ ssh -f -N -L 5900:localhost:5900 <user>@<remote IP>
$ vncviewer localhost
