EWS Labs, Remote Access, X-Forwarding for Unix/Linux

X-Forwarding instructions from Linux

To run applications with X-forwarding on a non-ews unix/linux machine, make sure you have X and SSH installed.

Connecting and running an application:

  • Once you have X running on your system, open an xterm. At the prompt, connect to an EWS workstation by typing: ssh -X your_netid@linux.ews.illinois.edu

  • The -X enables X11 forwarding.

  • Run the selected application (ie. Mathematica) from the command prompt.
