Re: X11 Forwarding via AmiCygnix?

Being able to use remote X11 apps on a local display greatly improve the ability to use AmigaOS on a everyday life basis.

I have tried and succeed to open remote apps on the Amicygnix as explained in this thread, however that was a bit tricky, and I do not understand how to open such an app on a dedicated window on the workbench instead of opening that app in the Amigygnix desktop (see screenshot above by @smf), much like you are able to use Amicygnix apps such as Abiword in "standalone" mode. Do you know how to do that?

Could include in a next Amicygnix release:
- a guide on how to use remote apps with Amicygnix
- a new GUI to manage allowed IPs instead of editing "Cygnix:CygnixPPC/etc/X0.hosts"?

As a further improvement, I would love to see more integration between SSHterm by Fredrik Wikström and Amicygnix.

It would be great to simply type the name of an app in SSHterm while connected on a remote Linux host and see that app appearing in a dedicated and re-sizable window on the workbench using the Amicygnix X11 display capabilities.
