I am not sure about the any fine manuals.
I recently got a FreeBSD 5.2 box to forward X to my FC1 box.
I had struggled with that box for some time and could not figure out why
it was not working. I have other FreeBSD boxes that forward X quite
well. Finally a couple of days ago I decided to install a complete XF86
setup rather than just the libs. Killed sshd started sshd then logged
logging back in I could run nedit and it worked.
The moral of this story may be, a full X system may need to be installed on
the machine you are trying to run the application from. X does not need
running, so it just wastes some drive space.
If a full X system is on the machine, then you will need to edit the
file and add these commands :
They may be in the file already and just need to have the comment character
Once the sshd_config is updated you will need to stop sshd then start it
I have on occasion come across a machine or two that required the
variable 'DISPLAY' to be set and exported in .bash_profile like this :
I don't know if DISPLAY=':0.0' would work or not, because I didn't try.
I hope that helps.
