X Forwarding with SSH
I officially made the switch to Gentoo last week, and the only problem I've had so far is that I can't get X forwarding to work correctly. When I do the following:
It just sits there and does nothing after I enter my password. This worked fine on Debian; is there some configuration file I have to change?
$ ssh -X rob@[host] firefox
Thanks for any help you can offer!
is how i would do it, think it is the same but try anyway
ssh -X -l rob [host]
if that fails, try a simple app
any errors would help
try forking off a child process something like:
$ ssh -f -X user@host mozilla-firefox
