Addendum to ssh -X flag
Authored by: Anonymous on Jan 14, '03 09:13:57PM
Add -C and you'll get compression as well, which can be useful over slow links. Throw ssh keys into the mix (see here) and you can make a trivial script which lunches X11.app, checks for quartz-wm, then issues the "ssh -X -C myremotebox.mydomain.com /usr/local/bin/myXapp &" combo, and voila, compressed ssh X forwarding, no password prompt, with display on your local box. Nice.
