I've currently have the following situation.

I have a server, that is connected to the internet with ssh (on a non 22 port). This is an ubuntu server without X server. Now i have a machine inside this network, that is used as a desktop machine.

Is it possible to forward all request on a specific port (for the server) directly to that desktop machine, to be able to use the Xserver over SSH?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

If you want the X client to appear on your desktop machine, the normal way I do this is with ssh -X servername

Check to make sure your Display environment variabile is set via echo $DISPLAY and any xclient started from that X session will show up on your desktop x server.
