Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Using X from behind a NAT router

Posted by Janine Ohmer on
It works!!!

For the record, here's what I did:

  • On the local system, create/edit $HOME/.ssh/config and add "ForwardX11 yes"
  • From the X desktop, ssh to the remote server
  • Run the X application on the remote server from the ssh instance
And it just works! I didn't enable anything about terminals and I haven't missed it yet, but that might be needed for something this application doesn't do. Thanks, guys!
