You can start X11 applications using your network.

You have to give the other box access to your local X-server, this is done by giving the command 'xhost ipofserver+'.

After that SSH into your server and type 'export DISPLAY=ipofotherpc:0.0'. Then type 'gkrellm2 &'.

you can run the gkrellm daemon on remote machines, then use the gkrellm client on your workstation to connect to the remote daemons. For example, if you were running gkrellmd on somehost, start gkrellm with 'gkrellm2 -s somehost' to monitor that host rather than your local machine.
