Do I *have* to have xauth (and all that it brings in?)
I want to use X11 Forwarding. Normally I can ssh -X to a machine and
it works fine.
But, I have a case where I need to first ssh to a machine on a public
IP and then from there ssh into the machine on the local LAN where I
want to run the application.
The problem is the machine in the middle is a server that doesn't have
any X libraries -- and doesn't have xauth. So ssh -vv -X <machine>
debug1: Remote: No xauth program; cannot forward with spoofing.
I don't really want to apt-get xbase-clients:
# apt-get -s install xbase-clients
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
libdps1 libfreetype6 libxaw7 xlibmesa3 xlibs
Is there any other way around that?
