SGD & SSH
By dragonfly on Nov 23, 2006
While I tend to do more with Sun Rays, I do spend some time working with Sun Secure Global Desktop (SGD). I recently did an install at a customer site where they have access to servers locked down pretty well. Basically, ssh is the primary means of access, which means SGD will encounter problems when using it's default settings for accessing X applications. A couple quick changes to /etc/ssh/ssh_config, and SGD is running X apps like a champ.
In /etc/ssh/ssh_config, uncomment the following lines, and change their value from 'no' to 'yes' :
# ForwardAgent no
# ForwardX11 no
Also, verify that in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file the following is set (should be by default) :
Being that one of the key value os SGD is the secure part, I expect this configuration is more the norm than I have experienced so far.
