X Forwarding with SSH

xauth has to be installed on the Server.

root@server: yum install xauth

ssh configuration

sshd_config is only serverside.
ssh_config is client side.
Allthough you probably use your machine as both anyway, so you might want to change both config files on all of your systems.

X11Forwarding yes
service sshd restart
ForwardX11 yes
ForwardX11Trusted yes

using x forwarding

To actually use the feature use the switch -X. For example:

ssh -X root@server virt-manager
