Xwin lab#08

It is really interesting to know we can run application on local computer , but actually they are displaying remote computers.


#xterm -display

this command will display an X terminal on remote computer’s display number 1, while the command is invoked form

and the vice versa is also true

we can run command on remote computers but their GUI will display on local computer.

ssh -X -C varinder@china firefox

its relly interesting.

but could not understand the following command

X :2 -query [server2’s IP] &

X :2 -indrect [server2’s IP]
