I have a quick, and possible naive, question to do with X forwarding in GE6.2 (Linux).
I want to be able to log into my frontend node via ssh from a remote client (also
Linux), and run a graphical application on an execution node using qrsh.
If I were logged in at the frontend node console, I would type something like:
> qrsh xclock -display `hostname --fqdn`$DISPLAY
and the display (here xclock) would pop up on my desktop. However, if I ssh into the
frontend node from a remote client (eg my office), I don't seem to be able to get ssh
to forward the display:
remote_client> ssh -Y frontend
frontend> qrsh xclock `hostname --fqdn`$DISPLAY
Error: Can't open display: frontend:10.0
I'm assuming that this is because no X-server is running on the frontend node, but
shouldn't ssh forward the display to my remote client? Is there a way to circumvent
this whilst retaining the GE6.2 builtin qrsh system?
