I know how to forward X sessions to my local computer, and I know how to run GUIs to start on the remote machine using export
However, let's say I have a bittorrent client, like transmission, running on the remote machine, and I want to check on its progress? Currently, I have to run remote desktop using Remmina to check it, and this isn't ideal.
I also don't want to shut it down and then start it again on my local machine, because this will interrupt the download progress, and I will have to remember to start it again on the remote machine, once I close it locally.
So the idea is, I want to temporarily forward the X session for an already-running GUI. Is this possible? How do I do it?
