I have a quite complex question to ask. The problem is with the system admin who has some special preferences...
The problem: I want to run remote X applications but forward it to my computer. The tradition X forward over ssh is disabled by him, he only allows using the export DISPLAY=some_ip_addr:0 to forward X applications. However, my PC does not have a public address which means the server cannot find my PC actually. Here is the configuration for the three computers I have in hand:
- SERVER: where I want to have my X applications to run
- PC: my LOCAL PC where I want the GUI on
- SSH_SERVER: a ssh server which has a static IP address
I have enabled the X server to listen to TCP on my PC. I wanna using
ssh -R 6000:localhost:6000 user@SSH_SERVER
However, I failed on this way. Do you hae any suggestiongs that I can overcome this problem? Or anythin I did not make myself clear, please post here as well.
