I would like to know if there is an easy and efficient way to use the full QGIS desktop experience on a server.
Currently I installed QGIS desktop on an Ubuntu Server and I am able to open the graphical interface over SSH:
ssh -X username@remoteserver
and then simply opening QGIS by typing "qgis" which runs the binary on the server but opens the gui on my desktop pc (Ubuntu as well).
It has full functionality but the interface is not very efficient (long rendering) if I access the local network from outside (from inside it is fine though).
I saw information on QGIS server but it looks like a stripped down WMS version of the original QGIS. I wondered if there was something that offers me a broader range of function with the efficiency of QGIS server technology for remote usage...?
Why do I need full functionality? Well, instead of only displaying and filtering data (think of WMS) I would like to use this setup to create spatial models that require QGIS algorithms. Those models can often take up long processing hours and by executing them on a server I could free my Desktop PC from the processing overload.
