>From what I understand, this is not a Mathematica problem, but rather a limitation of X-forwarding using SSH. In fact, even just opening gv to view a postscript image takes forever. What you want is something like FreeNX to facilitate remote desktop usage in something akin to real-time. http://freenx.berlios.de/ Cheers, t.
