It is possible to redirect the display of X11 applications to a remote X11 compatible display. For example, for configuring an Aspera Enterprise Server through the GUI it is possible to start the desktop GUI remotely and have the display redirected on a Mac OS or Linux computer.
In order to make this work, the following steps may be necessary:
1. Configure SSHD to allow forwarding in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file:
2. Install X windows (depending on the distribution, some libraries could be not installed by default. When you have installed X, tries to run the GUI if fails the error should be self-explanatory):
yum groupinstall "X Window System"
Now you can start the Aspera GUI remotely, for example, on a Mac in a terminal window:
ssh -Y firstname.lastname@example.org asperascp
In case your client runs on Windows, you need to install an X server on the windows box too, for example:
and use a ssh client like putty with X11 forward enabled
