    X11forward question

    hi all

    is it possible to temporarily stop forwarding x11 DISPLAY to an active x11forward session without dropping that session?

    I think so. I just learned that I can reconnect to a running session on a remote host by reestablishing the connections

    $ ssh -N -L aport:localhost:anotherport me@remote.host

    Anyway, you probably want vnc. It's free. The x server runs under the vncserver on the x client , and then you can open and close views to that session at will from different displays using the vncviewer. It's wonderful.
