Can X11 Forwarding be changed to a different port (i.e. not 6000)?
Posted on 2013-01-10
Here's the situation: We're trying to work in an app, but the server is running an old OS which doesn't support SSH. We're using X11 Forwarding successfully, but one of our users is behind a firewall, and their IT won't open a port. Therefore, I'm wanting to have X11 forward its windows to a port which is open -- probably a well-known port.
(I'm not wanting to kluge an SSH installation nor simply increment 6000 by an offset.)
