Re: indirect nx access?

Hi Dave
this probably does not answer your question directly, which is related to ForwardX11.
My answer is mail related.
to access mail from anywhere we have done a Webmail installation on a server based on squirrelmail. And once I have established a cli to an internal machine, I can also use alpine (the former pine from Washinghton University) on an internal machine.
Both o'them require that you mail is accessible via IMAP.
Both o'thme require that you have done the respecive installations before you go off.

I'm going to recommend that you check out the following key words, dynamic dns, ssh tunnels and freenx client. Throw them in the mix, configure and job done. I could be more specific, but where is the lesson in that?? :)

Subject: indirect nx access?


I don't understand how to access my workstation when I'm travelling.

I have two computers on a router that has a routable address. Port 22 and 80 are forwarded to a small underpowered computer hosting a dozen web sites. I can remotely access the cli there using ssh and check for updates and look at the load, which is pretty much all I ever want to do on that computer. Then while logged in on that machine I can ssh to my own workstation which is also on 192.168.0 and get a cli there. But that is almost useless, because I really want to use an x session on that machine so I can check my mail (kmail on F7). I can easily run freenx server on my station but I don't see how I can get in through the publicly accessible machine and tunnel into my station. I basically can not change the server and it doesn't have the horsepower to run a freenx session without seriously degrading the response times for its users.

So ideally I'd pack around a usb memory stick with a copy of the !m client and then somehow indirectly access my station from some internet cafe. It seems to me that if I can do it with ssh it should be possible to get an x session that way too but I don't know how.

Ideas? stuff to read?
