X11 Forwarding with PuTTY
Authored by: asmeurer on Nov 29, '10 11:02:36AM
I never knew PuTTY was available on the Mac. I've always known it as the Windows SSH tool. Really, in most cases, just typing ssh -X HOST should be enough to do your X11 forwarding. This will open X11 (or XQuartz), and you can run GUI programs by typing their name in the command line (sometimes, you access the GUI by adding an x before the name of the program, for example, the command line version of Maple is maple, but you can get the GUI by typing xmaple. Also, adding an & to the end of the command is recommended so that you are not locked out of the command line while the program is running.
