General :: Windows 7 - How To Use X11 Forwarding With Putty

I have a VM with RHEL 5 without an X server. My host has Windows 7.

I need to connect to the VM and redirect the X11 output of the commands to my host.

I know that if my host were a GNU/Linux machine it would be as easy as ssh -X .

I'm ussing PuTTy to connect by SSH to the VM, I tried enabling X11 forward option in PuTTy config, but nothing happened.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Cannot See Graphical Output: WinXP, PuTTY, X11 Forwarding?
I am accessing a LINUX cluster machine via the internet from my PC. My PC is using Windows XP. To access the cluster I use VPN Client and PuTTY. I can access the cluster from my PC without any problems as long as only the command line and no graphical interface are involved. To allow for graphical interface I installed Xming and I enable X11 forwarding for PuTTY. However, the graphical interface/output of the program I am using (GrADS) does not appear. Instead I get the error message ?Segmentation fault?.Does anyone know what what I need to do in order to see graphical interface/output via PUTTY

General :: Set PuTTY's Appearance In Windows
Is it possible to configure PuTTY to have me some nice colour scheme like vim's desert?

I'm an PuTTY user under Windows and my login shell is tcsh. The current PuTTY theme setting is a very boring "black background and white character" user interface.

If it is possible, could you illustrate a little bit about how it works?

I've goolged this issue, but it seem both client side and server side settings are involved in changing PuTTY's appearance, which makes me quite confused.

General :: Start Gqview From Windows Over SSH With Putty / Plink
I'm trying to figure out how to start/stop gqview remotely from a batch script on a windows machine. Stopping works with killall but starting gives me a
Code: Gtk-Warning **: cannot open display warning.
Is this because it tries to open a GUI in the terminal and if so how to solve this?

General :: Windows With Putty Via USB Serial Cable To Serial Port - Output Ok, Input Isn't?
I am trying to get two way serial communications going between a Windows XP system and a Linux system (RHEL 5).I have /sbin/agetty -L 9600 ttyS0

in /etc/inittab. I am using a generic USB to serial adaptor on Windows (Unitek) and a null modem cable. I have putty configured for 9600 baud, 8 bits, no parity, one stop bit, no flow control.I get the login prompt from agetty in the putty window but input does not work; I see weird characters in the putty screen. I can echo output into the device from windows and see it, but

cat < /dev/ttyS0. just prints out weird characters from what I type.

Ubuntu :: Setup A Putty Session To Putty From One Machine To Another?
I am trying to setup a putty session to putty from one Ubuntu machine to another. I know how to setup to connect to the machine from Windows and I am using the same settings for the one I am trying on the Ubuntu machine but it fails to connect. It fails immediately so I believe that putty is not able to find ssh. Is there some configuring that I need to do.

I'm trying to do a ssh connection (using Quest Putty) from Windows to Linux. As linux are joined to Active Directory, is possible to do a SSO (using kerberos). If I connect from linux to linux using ssh, it works fine. If I connect form Windows (Win7) to Linux using Quest Putty or Centrify Putty, an error is displayed:

OpenSUSE Network :: X11 Forwarding - Windows Client Works But It's Doesn't - Cannot Connect To X Server
I have x11 forwarding enabled in /etc/ssh/sshd_config on a suse 11.2 32 bit box running kde I can open x apps on a windows machine using xming and putty just fine, but when I boot the same machine into suse 11.2 64 bit using kde and try using konsole I get: cannot connect to x server

The command I'm using to log in is: ssh -X -l username host I doubt the problem is with the server I'm logging into or it wouldn't work in windows, not really sure what to look for as I've never had a problem using x11 forwarding from a linux client before only windows ones

General :: Putty Ssh To Ubuntu Server 9.10
I can't figure out why I keep getting kicked out of the ssh session almost immediately after login to an ubuntu 9.10 server (32bit).See the screenshot. I just installed this server and didn't make any ssh config options. I thought it would work right away.When I ping that server I get sporadic responses where some packets are lost. It's an old Dell poweredge 1400.where should I start troubleshooting? Authentication? Hardware?

General :: Vps With Putty Closing, Or Freezing?
I recently purchased a dedicated server and have been having trouble with putty. I have been using the server to try and host the game called minecraft. Hosting the server is not a problem however. What is the problem is being able to exit putty without stopping the server. I looked this up, and it sayed to create a screen. I did that after installing screen. I then created a screen, ran the server, then tried to disconnect using the ctr-a-d.However only two things happen when i push the buttons. The majority of the time the window just closes, along with my server stopping. The other thing that happens is putty just stops. I cant type in anything, but I am still notified when I try to close putty.

General :: PuTTY / Debian: Switching Between Sessions?
I am no longer working on the Linux-machine directly, but I'm using Windows puTTY to get a terminal-session. Within that puTTY window I want to switch (or maybe create first) several sessions between which I can switch arbitrarily. I have read about using Ctrl-Alt-Fn, which doesn't work, most likely due to the puTTY interface. I have tried chvt n, which doesn't do anything either (or that it seems). I have tried "bash &" and got bash in the background, which I could call forth using fg, but then had to stay with that and couldn't switch anywhere. Only option was "exit". So, what's the correct way to get several sessions in that puTTY window and switch between them?

General :: Batch File To Login To Putty?
I've created a .bat file with this line: start C:USERSPuttyputty.exe -ssh -pw password

That opens a putty session and logged in it with the user and password i've already specified. But now, I want to enter a simple command like "ls -l" for example.. How can I do that?

I've also tried plink...The line in that case is this one:

start C:USERSPuttyplink.exe -v -ssh -pw password -m UNIX_commands.txt

and in that file "UNIX_commands.txt" I've added the following lines:

cd /projects/test
ls -l

all works fine (the commands are executed) but i can't see the putty session... all i can see is the verbose in my DOS windows of the last line "ls -l"...

The putty session vanishes away. How can I have the session opened and list the mentioned directory.
