Pre Requisites on Linux for Xterm sessions/terminal
There is a 64 bit Redhat 5.5 server:
Linux black.xyzzz.com 2.6.18-194.el5 #1 SMP Mon Mar 29 22:10:29 EDT 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I'd like to login to it remotely in GUI mode. Using say, Xming, or Mobaterm.
On a separate windows machine, I've tried installing both products and putty.
Putty can connect fine.
But with the X products, all I get is a black screen. Very odd.
So, intuitively, I figure, the Linux server first needs to be configured for xterm, and the Xwindows/terminals/sessions.
Is this true?
If so, how do I configure it? Or, where is a clear concise document on how to do this on Redhat 5.5?
Thanks a lot!
Usually we try not to install unnecessary packages (X Windows) on a server, however if you must then :-
yum groupinstall "X Window System"
yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"
Edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and ensure X11Forwarding is enabled
Enable X11 forwarding to localhost:0 in PuTTY under Connection >> SSH >> X11 and save as default profile
Launch putty and connect to the server
Launch an X application
Instead of using PuTTY/Xming, you could install freenx server on the target server.
