Forwarding X in snow leopard

Just picked this up from a blog as I needed to forward GUI apps over SSH.

The answer was just to replace localhost with

Start Terminal from utilities
run "startx" in the terminal
right click on the dock (my recent fav trick) run "xterm" from Applications menu.

The next are commands to run in the xterm.

xhost +
ssh -R 6000: myserver

Now, you can run your GUI app

I still have habits to do the xhost +, sometimes it's just conditioning and I'm not even sure if the commands are useful.

dead pi

Well, I guess it has to happen at some point. the home automation raspberry pi has died. Much to do with the stupid Strontium mini SD card. ...
