Enable X Tunneling Using SSH Secure Shell

If you are using an X server, you might need to have a "tunneled connection."

In order to turn on X11 tunneling, create a bookmark; see Create Bookmarks Using SSH Secure Shell/SFTP.

After you have created the bookmark, you will need to edit the profile (i.e., bookmark) again.

  1. Click Profiles, then Edit Profiles. The familiar Edit Profile window will appear.
  2. In the white box that makes up the left half of the window, click on the name of the profile. A window similar to the one below will appear:

  3. Click on the X11 Tunneling tab. A window similar to the one below will appear:

    X11 profile set tunneling
  4. Check the box next to Tunnel X11 connections, then click OK.

Naming Your Connection

We recommend naming a regular connection hostname, and tunneled connection.
