To all who responded to my call for help, many thanks. Some were quite 
cryptic but I think I got to understand them. One pointed me at a useful 
'how-to' but when I read that, and it's 'improved' sequel, I thought 
'Wow! It can't be that difficult.'

Then I got George's email about vino and vinagre and found that my 
'mainframe' already had vino installed and it took but a minute to load 
up vinagre on laptop. And they worked first time - exactly as I had hoped.

So here is a satisfied old chap who now knows a little more about Linux. 
Can't be bad. Well done all.
