I try to connect remote desktop to my fedora machine from another linux machine. I did it for specific programs and run them with GUI however I cannot find a way to remote desktop access other then teamviewer. Is is also possible to use ssh to see the remote machine desktop or is there an other method around ? I am running Fedora 17 on host and I aim to connect to it from any other linux distributions.

You can use vino.

Vino is a VNC (Virtual Network Computing) server allowing remote connection 
to your actual desktop.

Try this tutorial Remote Access to the Fedora Linux Desktop

good luck
