Hi can someone help with my problem? I am using 9.1 and have ssh setup,
I am able to login and have access to my account, but when I start a
x-server it says that I am not authorize. I have read about adding
ssh-agent (window manger) in ~.xsession but I don't have one so I
created it and still no go. Do you need ssh-agent or am I off track? I
have xforwarding enabled. I am a newbie so please keep
answer simple.

I have a computer upstairs and one downstairs. The upstairs is the main
one and it has all of the /home dir. The one downstairs is for for someone
to use when the computer upstairs is being used(too many people not enough
computers). I was thinking about setting up the computer downstairs so you
could be able to use your /home dir in a gui way(wife and kids will need
something easy). I though using ssh would be a secure way of doing this,
or is there a better way?

Thank you

Re: ssh help please

i didn't read all of your message - are you saying you can't start X apps
via ssh? you need XForwarding enabled and when the CLIENT connects you need

ssh -X bob@
