There is the XDMCP option, which allows you to remotely connect to an X display manager for full, remote display sessions. This isn't regarded to be a secure solution by most people. If your remote system is a server, do you have a need for remote desktop access? If you have one or two X applications on the remote server, could you just get by with SSH X11 forwarding to access those applications from your management station's display?
