Subject: X forwarding to a Windows 7 PC
I am trying to forward X from a Debian PC (laptop) to windows 7 pc
(desktop) without using SSH.
Will either use xming or mobaxterm on windows 7 pc
After some research, it looks like it can be done by copying the X
server cookie over to the windows 7 PC.
then use the following command to launch the programs on the windows pc.
Both the PCs are directly connected and have access to each others
files using cifs tools/Samba.
As the computers are only few meters apart, I dont think a SSH
connection is needed.
I haven't tried this yet, is there anything I need to be aware of
before going down this path. I mean are there any security implication
Also which one is
IIRC there is a version requirement for Samba to play nice with W7. Google for Samba and Windows 7
