Interesting, but have you indication that an X11 connection would
actually work better? I hardly remember why but some years ago I
preferred to use vnc connection over X11 from linux to linux boxes but
probably that was not for performance reasons but because it was more
convenient and stable. I use vnc still a lot (now from windows to
windows) and found that reducing the resolution of the vncserver will
help a lot with performance if that is an issue, and for remote access
to Mathematica run in full screen mode a relatively small resolution
should be sufficient...

hth,

albert
