I've installed freeSSHd server on Windows 7. It works fine but when I try launching any graphical executables via SSH (e.g.
"C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin\gimp-2.8.exe" or
start /d "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin" gimp-2.8.exe), the program (GIMP) starts in the background and no windows are displayed. I can see the program running in the Windows Task Manager, though. I am connecting to the host from an OpenSSH client running on Debian.
- Why are graphical applications not visible to the user when launched from an SSH session?
- How can I launch a graphical application from an SSH connection so that the user logged into the host PC can interact with it?
