Re: X11 Forwarding via AmiCygnix?

X11 = Linux, RDP = Windows.

I don't have any Windows machines, only Linux which is why I was looking at x11 forwarding to the Amiga. I am lazy so wanted to be able to forward things like firefox to my Amiga when using it and not have to change computers.

To do X11 forwarding, you need to have a X11 server on the Amiga which is what AmiCygnix is. To use it, you generally need to set the DISPLAY env to the host to forward to (and worry about a few security options) or use something like the -X option with SSH which will allow you to forward if the ssh server settings of the host you connected to are set to allow it.
