I guess I'm just an idiot but I can't seem to get this to work. Can anyone give me a little more info?
I am able to connect to the server but then what do I do if I wanted to, say, run mozilla or something?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Just type "mozilla" at the unix prompt and hit enter. If that still doesn't work it may be because your remote account (or school) doesn't have mozilla installed. Try "netscape" instead. Even if it works it could still take a very long time to show up on your local display depending on your connection speed. Matlab works well because it's mostly text based except when I need to plot a graph. Netscape took forever to display on my system even though I'm on a cable modem. Typing "mozilla" didn't work for me because my school doesn't have that installed.
