How to export X-11 display over SSH using Putty and Hummingbird Exceed


Goal

How can I launch Content Server Component Wizard, BatchLoader or SystemProperties in an SSH shell.

There are several applications that must be launched from the Content Server file system. The SSH shell can be helpful to use those applications or it if for some reason you need to launch Content Server applets from the file system because accessing them through the Web Server is not possible.

Second, in the case where I log in as userA but must become userB (using sudo -), the SSH encryption token file (.Xauthority) does not get passed into userB’s home directory for X-11 forwarding to take place over the same SSH session. This key file must be used to allow userB to pass X-11 packets over the same SSH session originally established by userA.
