I am connecting to my work-pc (ubuntu 12.04) from home (win7). to do this I need to use a vpn and use tunneling. So first of all I connect through vpn. Then I use ssh to connect to the internal server of the company and then I use another shell and ssh to connect from the server to my own pc at work.


The connection is ok and I have a shell to do everything but I couldn't use X11 forwarding to have a visual connection. How can I do that. I tried adding X11 option to ssh commands but it doesn't work. Is the problem related to the tunneling or is it possible at all?
