The X2Go Server allows you to connect to and control your machine from a remote computer running the X2Go Client. You can simulate a complete desktop session or run individual remote applications as if they were running on your local machine. The protocol is secure (via SSH) and very responsive, even over a very slow connection.

Bcvi is a tool that works with SSH to provide a secure "back channel" for sending commands back from the server to your workstation. For example, using bcvi and a shell alias, you can log into a server and type "vi filename". Instead of running vi in the terminal window, on the remote server, bcvi will send a message back to your workstation, where a listener process will invoke gvim (a GUI version of vim) and pass it an scp://... URL for the remote file. Bcvi has a plugin architicture that allows you to add support for any process you want to launch on your workstation by running a command on the server.
Belier allows opening a shell or executing a command on a remote computer through an SSH session. The main feature of Belier is its ability to cross several intermediate computers before realizing the job. You can execute commands with any account available on the remote computer. It is possible to switch an account on intermediate computers before accessing the final computer, and Belier will generate one script for each final computer to reach.
DSSH was written as a direct replacement for the OpenSSH client. It adds SSH over SSH tunneling capabilities (for example, to log in to a network hidden by a firewall), scripting support (using BeanShell), an advanced agent (which allows storing of passwords) and "su -" interactive logging for machines that have disabled direct root login. All of this was done to enable automated scripting and logging to many machines based on a few simple rules.
KVpnc is a KDE frontend for various VPN clients. It supports Cisco VPN (vpnc, vpnclient (a proprietary client from Cisco)), IPSec (FreeS/WAN, Openswan, strongSwan, racoon), PPTP (pptpclient), OpenVPN, L2TP over IPSec (l2tpd, xl2ltpd, openl2tp) (usable with FreeS/WAN, Openswan, strongSwan, and racoon), Vtun, and OpenSSH. Smartcards will be supported within OpenVPN and strongSwan. vpnc is a replacement for the Cisco VPN client, and is used as a client for the Cisco3000 VPN Concentrator. FreeS/WAN, Openswan, and strongSwan are IPSec clients for Linux 2.4.x/2.6.x, and racoon is an IPSec client for Linux 2.6.x and *BSD. l2tpd, xl2tpd, and openl2tp are Linux L2TP VPN clients/servers.
