Hi there,

I have an SSH server running Slackware 13.0 on Kernel 2.6***.

I am able to SSH into this machine remotely, and can run graphical apps with "ssh -X" or "ssh -Y" from the remote machine. I have a couple GUI programs running on the remote machine which I would like to be able to view remotely. Am I somehow able to forward an existing X11 session entirely, or at least a single application or 2, without resorting to VNC (which I'm not really a fan of due to speed/security concerns, etc).

I am certain that graphical ssh is working in general, as I can run a couple KDE games, xlogo, etc, from my server machine. I'd like to be able to open some other graphical apps that are already running in the background that cannot be closed and restarted, or have multiple instances opened.

Thank you all in advance :)
