RE: single linux box on dsl?



The redhat-config-securitylevel doesn't provide X ports as an option so it
blocks it by default.
However, what you really need is to open SSH only, port 22, and use X
forwarding over SSH, usually by using the -X option when invoking ssh
Example loggging in from a rmote host
$ ssh -X -l username homemachineIP 

For this to work, you also need to make sure in the /etc/ssh/sshd_conf file
that X11Forwarding says "yes"
