X11 over ssh is as simple as: workstation-with-X> ssh -Y <headlessbox> headlessbox> xterm Or even shorter: ssh -Y <headlessbox> xterm To enable X11 over SSH you need to at least have xauth installed on the headless box (and ofcourse the X program you're trying to run, in my example xterm). -- Pieter de Goeje _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
