Re: remote X apps
I've used two approaches in the past.
1. Log into the alpha system with ssh. ssh should modify your DISPLAY
variable to something like alpha:10 (as long as you don't modify it in
your .profile,...) Run your X app. ssh has permission to draw on your
DISPLAY, so you don't need to open the system with xhost or transfer the
2. I've done this on some router hardware, but I haven't tried IP-Masq.
Direct a particular port from outside the router to a particular IP
address. I think X is something like port 6000 or 6001. If you direct
incoming connections to your masq server port 6000 to the .10 machine
you may be able to get X working. You set the display on the alpha to
the masq_server:0. If you need more machines running X through the
firewall, direct the next port to another machine. i.e. port 6001 to .11
machine and set the display to masq_server:1.
I recommend the ssh approach.
