SSH -xserv


What I am trying to do is login to my terminal machine and load x over the network instead of my current command which is:

#ssh -X 192.168.*.* (*s are real numbers, but I dont want to give my subnets).

through my current command I can still load aps over the network, but I have a big enough network pipe, I would rather simply load all of X and not be confined to my laptops old version of RH, nor its small HD.

This also will apply to future plans of mine.

any and all help is appreciated. Thanks!

If I understand you correctly, I think you're misunderstanding how X forwarding works. When you ssh -X, the X server on the remote host simply redirects program output to the X server on the local host. So you will always be limited by the X server of the local host. Check out Remote X Apps Howto for more on this.

Scratch that. Check out that link above, and look up "Setting Up an X Terminal". I think that's what you're after.
