Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

Another option:

- on your PC open an cmd window
- go to the folder that contains xming
- type "plink" to get this help screen again

plink -X user@host /path/to/firefox

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

You probably need to add "-i key", but why not simply start xming and start putty like you always do? Make sure Xforwarding is enabled.

Hope this helps!

I Enabled X11 Forwarding in Putty and also tried using -i key in cmd prompt...this time the error messages changed...

I get below 2 errors

1. Unable to Load /opt/firefox
2. Unable to open connection: Host does not exists.

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

I guess the application is /opt/firefox/bin/firefox, but better check this ( with "whence firefox").

Hope this helps!
