Connecting with X11 forwarding

X11 forwarding allows the use of GUI applications over the network. There are some significant issues with X11, including low performance and lost sessions when disconnecting from the network. For these reasons we recommend using [[Remote Access using x2go|x2go]] instead of X11 for all use cases.

Windows

  -  Start Xming
  -  Start Putty
  -  Enable X11 forwarding
