Tunneling X through SSH WIndows to Linux Box
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2012
Excuse me if this is the wrong subforum to post this.
I'm wanting to tunnel a graphical X connection over SSH. I know there are many ways to accomplish this, but I'd like to avoid any VNC or FreeNx solution. I'd like to go with the tried and true if possible -- the X windowing system.
My problem is program stability. I'm currently attempting to tunnel from windows box to linux box using the cygwin X server implementation. Once logged in through ssh, I'm a little in a loss what to do. The only way I can seem to get things working, is launch xnest followed by either a xfce4-session or openbox or fluxbox session. Things work great for about 2 minutes, and then the connection suddenly just konks out. I've attempted to look up the error codes that immediately proceed the disconnect, however this attempt seems futile. So many discordant pieces of information with different software, linux installs, setups, etc.
I guess I'm looking for the best way to proceed at this point,
VNC over SSH. Windows client Linux Server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 6, 2004
I recently started a job where all the workstations have windows on them and I find that difficult to bare. I need my daily shot of Linux ;-)
I have been trying to use VNC to connect to my Linux box at home over SSH. I have Mandrake Linux 10 installed with tightvnc-server and ssh server. My server sits behind a Linksys router with port 22 forwarded to the serv.
At work I downloaded Putty for windows and TightVNC Viewer. I set up putty to forward 5901 to localhost:5900 and I can remotely connect via SSH to my home server.
The next bit is where I can not proceed beyond:
Logged in via ssh to my Linux server I issue the command
vncserver -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16:2 and after the initial questions about passwords(when I ran it for the first time) it seems that the Xvnc is started on screen 2.
If I open my VNC viewer and point it at localhost:0 the vnc viewer reports that "Failed to connect to server"
localhost::5901 makes the Vnc viewers connection dialogue d
Slow SSH Windows Linux

this is not really an Ubuntu question but rather a general Linux SSH protocol one. However, I know there are a lot of competent guys round here, so I'm posting it here.
We've been discovering slow network speeds in our company when connecting from Windows PCs to Linux servers via SSH protocol. We have tried different clients like Putty and Windows SSH Secure Shell.
While between the Linux machines we achieve exactly our theoretical network limit of 100Mbit/s, the performance is only approximately 30 to 40% of that in the case of Windows/Linux connections. And very interesting: The speed may even go down to a few KB/s, if another Linux machine requests a file from the same server at the same time. Linux/Linux connections seem to be always preferred over Windows/Linux ones.
I have googled quite a bit on that issue and found that we are definitely not the only ones experiencing such problems. However, it surprises me that no one seems to know a fix, since such speed probl
Tunneling X thru SSH (Windows)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 31, 2005
Does anyone know how to use tunneling in SSH to run X on a remote system? I know you can do this on Windows using PuTTY and some other program. Question is, whats the other program (X on Windows), and how do I do this with it and PuTTY on Windows? I've seen screnshots of it, and I recently installed X on my Linux box (dependencies), and I am kinda tired of the Console. Thanks in advance.

ok! I using vncviewer client (vnc-3.3.7-x86_win32_viewer) to directly connect the linux box without ssh. You mentioned that I using zonealarm as my laptop, then I closed the zonealarm; then open the vncviewer client and type the internal ip (eg 192.168.1.3:1) follow :1.
Directory permissions for Cygwin SSH (Windows 7)
- date: June 25, 2015
I am a fan of Linux but due to bad Intel wireless drivers in Linux, I had to switch to Windows 7. I have installed Cygwin in Windows and want to configure SSH to remotely connect to my laptop.
I searched with Google and found information for installing openssh server on Win 7, but I am getting the following error when running ssh-host-config:

*** Query: Overwrite existing /etc/sshd_config file? (yes/no) yes

SSH Keys Ubuntu Server, Windows Client
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 18, 2013
I have SSH working with putty and FileZilla with just password authentication, but I CANNOT for the life of me get SSH keys to work. This is the deal, I have a 12.10 Ubuntu home server with an encrypted home folder. This means that I have to put my Authorized_keys file in /etc/ssh/[my name here].
I generated the public key and private key without passwords with PuTTYgen on my windows 7 computer and named the keys:
The keys are 2048 bits. (is that enough?)
Then, I used an USB dongle to copy the public key to the Ubuntu server. So, in my /etc/ssh/[my name here] folder I put the RSApubkey file. This is the ONLY file in here. I actually don't have a file names authorized_keys. Do I need this file?
Next, I changed the sshd_config file to this configuration:
# Package generated configuration file
# See the sshd_config(5) manpage for details

Following the instructions listed here:
I have a machine set up to use Kerberos authentication for logins. The problem is, logins are now incredibly slow and any user from the AD fails to log in.
Here's the output from the server in debug mode:
