    Re:Running X applications over SSH

    A quick tip for those who are on a local network and want an Xsession from another box:

    Xnest -query remotelinbox :3

    This will actually shoot back a full X session, login screen and all. It's really cool - I use it at work a lot. It works with anything that runs X, too, so Solaris and linux and anything else whose x server does xdmcp should work fine. On the host serving up X, you'll need to enable XDMCP in your gdm/kdm/xdm config file (in /etc/X11).

    Enjoy.

    Never seen the ssh -D gorn. That's actually pretty useful. :-)

    I do SSH tunnels like this

    SSH -L local_port:destination:destination_port you@sshserver.com

    That'll forward any connections on whatever local port you specify, to the destination address on the port specified.

    BTW I just tried doing X forwarding from my Powerbook to my 1.33ghz Athlon. All I can say is....
