Secure remote desktop using SSH and VNC

University of Pennsylvania Biology Department have a great how-to for using SSH with port forwarding and VNC to create a no-cost secure remote desktop application. Although it’s a Mac OS-specific article, the basics work great on other OSs too, and I use this to remotely administer both Mac OS and OpenIndiana machines.

Can’t be beat for remote assistance on the cheap.
