Shortcut for Xenvironment

Connection method: Xbrowser
Server: REDHAT

I use Xmanager in a intranetwork, when i click on my connection i get to the login prompt,
can i have a shortcut on the desktop by which i am directly logged in to my xenvironment.
like while i use ssh to start an app in xstart.. it logs in directly and opens xterm,xclock...
can i directly in some way login to my xenvironment and instead of these xapps opening the xenvi should open through a desktop shortcut...

X server does not support direct login. This is not part of the standard X11 protocol. (Also, not recommended for security reason)

You can use Xstart and launch the remote desktop environment directly from your desktop. If you run Xmanager in single window mode, you won't notice a difference. =)

Use the following commands to launch the remote desktop.

For CDE: /usr/dt/bin/Xsession &
For Gnome: /usr/bin/gnome-session &
