Kind of off topic.

SSH in some of the servers is acting and working BUT I am assuming 
some servers won't have it... like some windows based machines.... 
The Mac's have it but the idea isto have the graphical interface 
since the errors of the problems they are having are presenting in 
their graphical applications....

Thanks a lot for you time. I will try to find a VNC that can be used 
in possible in all.
