[SATLUG] Remote VMware server console slow

I have been using vmware server under linux for some time now.  I have 
always loaded the virtual os's locally on the server.  Just today I 
decided to try out the remote capabilities of it since after all it is 
vmware "server".  I installed the vmware server client package on a 
remote computer.  I can connect to the server and load an OS with it but 
the OS will run horribly slow, both windows and linux guests.  The OS 
with the vmware server client package is debian and the remote host is 
ubuntu 7.10.  I am not sure if this is normal or what.  I am doing this 
connection over the internet and have not tried on the local lan yet but 
the bandwidth usage of all this does not seem to be more than my 
internet connection can handle.  The resources usage on both the local 
and remote computers are fine.  So is this not what the "vmware server 
client" package is for or is this normal?  I saw a few other people on 
google complaining of the same thing.
