Since most SSH servers already support this protocol it is very easy to set up: i.e. on the server side there’s nothing to do.

|Installing OpenOffice.org 2.3 on Fedora|
|How to install the “official” OpenOffice.org 2.3 directly from http://www.openoffice.org on Fedora, Red Hat and Centos Linux.
OpenOffice.org, the free and very good office suite of programs (word processor, database, spreadsheet, presentation manager) is distributed with Fedora, Red Hat and Centos Linux. However, the version that is distributed with the operating systems is not exactly the same as the “official version” that can be downloaded from http://www.openoffice.org. Plus, the version at http://www.openoffice.org tends to be newer than the ones that have made it into Fedora, Red Hat and Centos directly.
