X11 Forwarding with PuTTY
Authored by: lithoman on Nov 29, '10 01:54:35PM

The command should be ssh -Y, not ssh -X. ssh -Y is trusted forwarding. Allowing is -X is a security hole and may be disabled on the host and is subject to the X11 SECURITY extension

X11 Forwarding with PuTTY
Authored by: Hes Nikke on Dec 02, '10 09:53:04AM
I've found that I can only get X11 forwarding to work between my linux clients to my mac server (remember with X11, your display is the server and the app is the client) by doing
ssh -XY user@host
PS: WTF is with making me wait 45 seconds before i can look at an updated PREVIEW?! what happened to the Mac OS X Hints that I knew and loved 10 years ago ?! :(
vacuums do not suck. they merely provide an absence that allows other objects to take the place of what becomes absent.
