Ubuntu – How do you Xforward windows using ssh


How do you use Xforwarding through SSH beetween two ubuntu pc's?

Best Answer

Just opening a X application on a different machine is not difficult.

Connect to the machine local on which you want to start an application, but display it on your machine remote.

you@local$ ssh -X user@remote
(login etc)
user@remote$ nautilus

Performance may not be as good as you'd expected it to be. When disconnecting, type exit. If it hangs for some reason, press Ctrl + C to tear down the connection.
