You can run X apps over ssh if you use the >> -Y << option.  You can 
also configure ssh to use a non-standard port in it's config page.

I also believe you can port (tunnel?) VNC through ssh, but I have only 
heard about that, so I may be off here.  VNC is part of the standard 
CentOS distribution.
