If you are working at under unix/linux environment, you must know how to ssh. SSH can be consider a secure way to access remote site, people seldom use telnet these days. To access to a remote site with ssh is easy, I always do that:

ssh myname@

myname is my login name to the remote site, and is the IP of remote site. SSH support dns too, for example

ssh myname@my.remotesitename.com

Some of them do it differently, just like bellow

ssh my.remotesitename.com -l myname

By default, ssh port is 22, but sometimes is not, if other port, do this:

ssh myname@ -p 2334

Further more, if you want to allow forward X11 data, you can specified -Y, if you are also using linux, and the remote site also using linux, you can access its GUI programs through ssh. (Performance won’t be very good, but no harm trying)

ssh myname@ -Y

After successfully login, try to access programs such as gaim, run it as background process, it will load up on your site if you are under X11 environment.
