newbie here, so far this linux world seems too good to be true - until now... please help
I have an ubuntu server that I want to control from remote, from ubuntu desktop or XP.
Occasionally I need to run an application on that server that has a X-based GUI. I managed to launch it via
using X11 forwarding. The app is running on the server, and its UI shows on the desktop.
However if I turn off/restart the remote machine, the app terminates. As it takes a long time, I would like to be able to:
= launch it from remote when needed, giving its GUI some parameters:
= leave it running even if the remote machine disconnected:
= reconnect again and have a look at its GUI, perhaps from another computer/operating system
Asking too much here ? ....
