The last article had you setting up SSH, this one tells you how to forward x11 - thus using GUI apps over SSH.

This was on the old site, but I recreated it, cleaned it up, added more info, and made it neater.

I often won't bother starting up VNC or TeamViewer, I'll just forward the application's GUI to the system I'm working on. It comes in surprisingly handy, and it's pretty lightweight.

Feedback is always awesome. It makes the articles better.
