remote GUI session


Im in a VLSI class and we use Cadence design tools to design CMOS chips or whatever. In windows we use X-Win to use the design tools, what do I use in Linux to get the GUI stuff to show up....I've never done it before. I'm supposed to log into a server called yamserv and start a programming. After I start the program on my remote machine, it's supposed to open up a GUI on my computer.

Thanks,

Robert

Boy I don't know about this one...you could use ssh with X11 forwarding enabled...however it is pretty slow when you use a GUI. Not sure but I believe that telnet supports a GUI...however it is insecure. I have never used it I use ssh for all remote admin.

i would have to use ssh to connect to the remote machine because its on my universities ece network and they are security aware and dont allow outside telnet connections (and they are actually phasing out telnet connections internally too).

yea, i know to use ssh, but what terminal do i use to get the GUI stuff to forward to my screen? Will it do it automatically, lets say if im in KDE's Konsole or a gnome-terminal, when i ssh into the server and start the program, will the GUI stuff automatically be forwarded. I would just try it but I dont have the login information yet.

It isn't quite that simple...but close.
You can do it from any X-term as you suggest with syntax like

$ssh 192.168.1.1 galeon #of course subbing the proper ip and program

First though you must edit you ssh_config (on the client side) and sshd_config (server side) must be configured to allow X11 fwd'ing...you just uncomment the lines:
...# Host *
ForwardAgent yes
ForwardX11 yes...
If sshd_config is set up, which it should be, you will have a gui open as though it were on your machine.
go to openssh.org and various man for more indepth detail. This runs REALLY slow though...good luck!!
