    ssh X resize


    If I want to ssh to another machine and output the X server through ssh then, is there a way to resize the window to a lower resolution than on the host box? My host machine is set higher than the client and so the output is too large. Can I scale it down without resetting the resolution on the host machine everytime?
    Thanks

    I'm sorry I'm asking you a questions instead of actually answering yours, but I'm curious. Are you talking about using ssh to get a remote X window on the client machine? Like VNC? If that's the case, I didn't realize you could do that. Cool.

    i'm talking about

    ssh -X XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

    so that if you you were to run say, firefox on the host machine, it forwards the connection to the X server on your machine so that the host's firefox opens on your machine

    ok, that makes sense. Now that you describe it, I've seen that before. Sorry I can't be more help with your issue.
