If you type:
+ssh +"x11 forwarding"
(with the quotes) into google, you should find lots of HOWTOs.
Hi, this is a bit long so bear with me.
I'm trying to login using Linux to OpenBSD 3.1. I want to run xdm on the
obsd machine, X on linux and get a login window (which isn't happening,
or I wouldn't be taking your time...).
Here's what I've done:
1. Edited /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config:
* put '!' infront of DisplayManager.requestPort:0
* added DisplayManager*chooser: /etc/X11/xdm/chooser
2. Edited /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess so that all clients can access (uncommented
3. Configured X for my video card, keyboard and mouse (starts ok
locally, using startx or X).
4. Added to Xservers the '<name of linux machine>:1 foreign'
5. Added a file /etc/X0.hosts containing the hostname of the linux
machine, and a symlinkt to it, named /etc/X1.hosts (just in case).
Now, I start up xdm as root 'xdm -config /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config'.
Then, on the linux machine I do 'X :1 -query 192.168.0.2', which starts
up a second display fine, but no login prompt appears.
I know that there is somesort of a connection between the two machines,
since when I do netstat on either I can see a session between linux
machine port 6001 and xdm on obsd.
As I said, X on linux starts with no complaint. xdm on obsd complains
about pckbc, but that's if there's no keyboard attached. The main issue
(no login prompt) isn't solved when I connect a keyboard, anyway.
Any ideas people?
