You can make things more secure using SSH! I´m running Seqlab using MI/X
and the free SSH Client from Cedomir Igaly which does X11 forwarding.
Doing so you can get both - encryption and compression of the data.
For the users in our lab which are all used to Windows Applications this
seemed to be the easiest solution.
