TITLE: Remote X
LFS VERSION: any
AUTHOR: Ron885 <ron885 at linuxfreemail.com>
SYNOPSIS: This hint explains how to setup and and get working remote X.
Setting up remote X is very simple. You need two computers... one will be
called A and one will be called B. An X server needs to be running on A. To
allow computer B to connect to computer A's X server, you need to run
'xhost +Bip' on computer A. Than you have to follow the directions based on
how you are connecting to computer B.
If you are using ssh and have 'ForwardX11 yes' in your config:
You don't have to setup anything special, all you have to do is ssh
into computer B from computer A and run the programs normally, the ssh
will do everything for you.
If you are using telnet or you can't put 'ForwardX11 yes' in your config:
Make sure port 6000 is open on computer A. Telnet or ssh into computer
B and type 'export DISPLAY=Aip:0'. Then you can just run programs like
you normally would.
If it works, you should see the program you ran display on computer A.
