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.
1. 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 xorg-x11-xauth, jre and xterm (to make sure that all the required X libraries are present):
yum install xorg-x11-xauth jre xterm
Now you can start the Aspera GUI remotely, for example, on a Mac in a terminal window:
ssh -Y firstname.lastname@example.org asperascp
