I need to get remote X11 terminal access from Windows machines into my Ubuntu 16.04 system. I am choosing not to use RDP for this since this only affects the two Windows clients.
From the other Linux boxes it is simple, especially since they use RSA authentication:
pi@rover$ ssh -Y prime5
and wham, bam, I just get the prompt
But from Windows I use PuTTY which gives a great CLI connection. Quick and easy, and it saves creds so the connections are made very quickly.
When I type this on the Ubuntu command line
pi@PRIME5:~$ echo $TERM norm
Which means that GUI applications will not run.
I see PuTTY has the X11 option.
But it throws an error instead of working. It needs an X server on the client side to work with Putty.
Question is in the title: How to use PuTTY to get X11 connections over ssh from Windows to Ubuntu?
