Tunnel Apps with Button
And then they have to type in the Terminal the program they want to run.
Like firefox or ooffice.
I want to get rid of that. Since lots of people forget the names or new users get scared or they can run rm -rf.
So is there a way to run the ssh tunnel of the background (eg invisible) and make it posible to make a button on the Desktop that connects using ssh and then enters the firefox command.
I tryed a couple of things already.
ssh -2 -c blowfish -x UserID@appserver firefox
ssh -2 -c blowfish -x UserID@appserver & firefox
ssh -2 -c blowfish -x UserID@appserver &&firefox
ssh -2 -c blowfish -x UserID@appserver &|& firefox
ssh -2 -c blowfish -x UserID@appserver | firefox
firefox | ssh -2 -c blowfish -x UserID@appserver
But none worked.
So how to do this?

I think you have it almost right in your first try: for me,Code:
ssh -X email@example.com mozilla

enables X forwarding, while -x disables it.
