Using Reflection X from PC to HP-UX through a Linux jump server

Hi,

This is the scenario. Normally, we only use PuTTY to connect via ssh to a Linux jump server, which is RedHat, then telnet to the destination server, which is a HP-UX.

Now we would like to display X from the HP-UX - CDE, glance, SAM - to my local PC using Reflection X but have no idea on how to do that on above infrastructure.

Local PC - Vista
Reflection X version - 14.0.4
Linux - RHEL 4
HP-UX - B11.11

Feel free to ask me additional info in order to get a definite solution to my problem. Thanks!

Hi Abdul,
you need to configure X forwarding inside putty as well as on the RHEL Box.

After that you are able to connect over the jump server and start CDE, SAM,etc. and get it on your pc.

Update: I have fixed ssh on the HP-UX server.

Hi svo,

Sorry. I don't understand why I need to configure PuTTY on the RHEL box. Do you mean, I need to use PuTTY apart from Reflection X? Appreciate for your clarification. Thanks.

Re: Using Reflection X from PC to HP-UX through a Linux jump server

Sorry for the confusion - you need to configure ssh on the RHEL Box.

Alternativ run ssh -X , this should automatically forward your X session.

So step by step,
1. Configure putty
2. Start Reflection
3. start session to RHEL box
4. run ssh -X on the RHEL box
5. use your X app from the hpux box
