Remote X server.

  • If you want to be able to run remote “x” commands like “xterm” and have them show up on your local mac box (“remote x window server”), here’s how:
    • $ brew cask install xquartz
    • start xquartz application locally
    • install “xauth” on the remote server (ex: $ yum install xauth)
    • $ export DISPLAY=:0

    • ssh -Y username@hostname
