X11 Forwarding on SME
X11 Forwarding with SSH is a feature which allows windows of a remotely started (X11) application to be shown on your own (PC) desktop.
You find more information about configuring PuTTY and Xming in the External Links section below.
X11 forwarinf is normally disabled on SME server. To enable X11 forwarding, execute the following commands:
mkdir -p /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/ssh/sshd_config/ cd /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/ssh/sshd_config/ echo X11Forwarding yes > 50X11Forwarding echo X11UseLocalhost yes > 50X11UseLocalhost expand-template /etc/ssh/sshd_config
Next we need to install the xath package (from the base repository, so this should be enabled by default):
yum install xauth
The reboot is required to get the SSH server started properly with the forwarding enabled:
signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot
