ssh -x is not an option, would ideally like something fast possibly similar to Remote Administrator for windows however a linux equivalent. Have heard good things about gotomypc with Citrix online however I am not interested in paying 20 bucks USD a month for that service per machine. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

If the server and client are on the same network (or both have public IPs) then simply set the environment variable DISPLAY to be the client's IP:0 - the 0 is the desktop number on the client - leave it at 0 if you dont know what that is. The next time you fire up mozilla-firefox& the browser window will popup on your local client.
