I have a problem opening an X program (xterm as example) on a remote desktop.
what I did:
on computer A:
xhost + <IP of computer B>
on computer B:
the “xterm” stands as typed in the terminal window of B, but xterm doesn’t open on A. (at least I can’t see it)
did I miss something?
Is the xterm hidden somewhere?
both computers run under KE 4.9

I do not bother with all those expert things. I just do:
on local machine I open an xterm and run:
ssh -Y REMOTEUSERNAME@REMOTE.MACHINE.NAME.OR.IP
then, after I log in I can run, for example “xterm &” and I get an xterm
running on the remote machine opening in the local machine. Or any other

opening ports 6000:6007 in the firewalls made it working
