Using Linux Apps Remotely with X-Forwarding

You can use the X Window system on Linux to run programs.

The X Window System is used on many Linux machines. Under this system, it easy to run programs remotely and make them appear as if they were run on the local machine.

X-Forwarding for Windows

X-Forwarding for Mac

X-Forwarding for Unix/Linux

NOTE: It is important to keep in mind that X applications require more data to be sent to the display than traditional Linux text-based applications. Please exercise good judgment when X-forwarding graphic-intensive applications from the EWS workstations.
