X11 forwarding


Hi there everyone,

i've been trying to get X11 forwarding over ssh to work, but to so for no avail, i've managed to be able to type a command on my remote windows pox using putty such as, 'rdesktop -f \\192.168.0.1' and the graphical rdesktop screen came up on my fedora core 1 box and not my remote windows box. can anyone tell me what i've done wrong or if this X11 forwarding isn't meant to do what i think it's meant to do, what i want to be able to do is see a fedora gui on my windows box.

Make sure you're running a X server on the windows box
and that X11 forwarding is enabled in /etc/ssh/sshd_config (its disabled by default IIRC)

hi yea, i have enabled x11 forwarding, i'm not sure about an x-server though, all i can find when i look for information about that is how to set it up with 'exceed hummingbird' and i don't have a few hundred dollar's to buy it. do you know of a good free x-server. i'm not sure if this helps but i have XDMCP setup to accept clients to log onto my desktop.
