“ssh -Y” connection with Windows 7 [enabling X11]
You can use a small program called putty to establish a ssh connection on Windows machines. However you need to have a X11 connection in order to forward jobs with graphics.
For UNIX based systems one can use:
ssh -Y username@server
to connect. To achieve this on Windows you need to install Xming X Server also as an addition to putty.
After Xming setup is completed, open the settings of the shortcut of Xming and add “-ac” at the end of target setting.
Then you can start putty and go to Connection/SSH/X11 to make sure “Enable X11 Forwarding” is selected. If you choose to leave “X Display location” blank graphics terminal will be run on the server.
