Running X applications over SSH

Today I tried something I haven’t really done before and it works great.

Modifying my /etc/ssh/sshd_config file to say:
X11Forwarding yes
X11DisplayOffset 10
X11UseLocalhost no
I was able to run X applications on my slackware server and view them on my local linux pc. The syntax for this command is:
ssh -X you@yourserver.com

Here’s a screenshot of it.. Pretty cool, huh? Click the pic for the full size.
