    Exclamation How to enable X11 from putty?


    From WinXP,using putty provided Linux ipaddress and selected ssh with port 22.

    From left connection tree chose X11 and Click on "Enable X11 forwarding"


    After then clicked "open" I provided the username/pwd

    From here i used ssh to login to another Linux

    #ssh -X user@10.232.1.1

    //pwd entered

    #firefox &

    It didn't show me the browser??

    Any idea - where i'm doing it wrong?

    the machines you are connecting to must also have x server installed as well
