vncviewer is the solution. you can see if it is installed by

it it is not installed then you need install it, this may help you-

You can set up "remote desktop" feature on Linux using VNC. Part 2 and 3 in introduce how to use VNC in a SSH tunnel. You can also use it directly.

You can install VNC server and viewer by

# yum install vnc vnc-server


# yum install tigervnc-server tigervnc
