    how to speed up X11-Forwarding with ssh

    Hei,

    I would like to speed up the X-Forwarding through my SSH-Tunnel.
    I've brought up a ssh gateway machine to which I connect for the tunnel.
    then I can access the machines behind the gateway via tunnel.

    the X-Forwarding via ssh -X is horrible ...

    any experiences anyone ?

    X forwarding is slow.

    you could try

    ssh -X -C -c

    where -C is compression and -c changes the cipher.

    if it works you could edit your ssh_config so you dont need to type it everytime

    try just the -C first, man ssh for more information
