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
xauth cookies.

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.
