X11 forwarding is a special case of remote tunneling.
Tectia Client supports X11 forwarding on both Unix and Windows platforms. On Windows, you need also the XWindow Manager package. Tectia Server supports X11 forwarding only on Unix platforms.
X11 forwarding can be enabled in the client by setting the following line in the
ssh-broker-config.xml file (either under
or under a connection
<forwards> <forward type="X11" state="on"/> </forwards>
By default, X11 forwarding is off.
X11 forwarding can be enabled in the Tectia Connections Configuration GUI, under Default Connection → Tunneling for the default connection, and under Connection Profiles → Tunneling per each profile. See Defining Default Tunneling Settings and Defining Tunneling.
To test that X11 forwarding works on Windows, use the XWindow Manager. Log into the remote
system and type
xclock &. This starts an X clock program that can be used for
testing the forwarding connection.
If the X clock window is displayed properly, you have the X11 forwarding working. If the X clock fails and complains that it cannot open the display, check that the XAuth is properly installed on the remote host.
