    Meaning if I run firefox over SSH X Forwarding then it's running on my local machine. If that makes sense.
    Hey ,

    Yeah, I realize that now. Is there a way to do what I need to do?

    How about a vnc client that connects to vnc server you can close the vnc viewer when what ever you want to run then open vnc viewer
    I thought about VNC, but its not really what I need. I need a command based application, because I'm programming a remote which connects to an SSH server to make commands. But thank you

    Assuming that X on ssh destination PC is running as you, from the ssh session simply do:

    Code:
    export DISPLAY=:0.0
    (those are zeros)

    Then whatever X program you run from ssh will run and display on the sshd PC.
