C.6. Accessing Graphical Applications Remotely

It is possible to access graphical applications on a remote server using these methods:
  • You can start a separate application directly from your SSH session in your local X server. For that, you need to enable X11 forwarding. See Section 14.5.1, “X11 Forwarding” for details.
  • You can run the whole X session over network using VNC. This method can be useful, especially when you are using a workstation without X server, for example, a non-Linux system. See Chapter 15, TigerVNC for details.
