DISPLAY for ssh and dynamic IP?

 
I read for dynamic IP I shall set -display $DISPLAY
And for ssh the display is defined by the ssh server.

But how can I connect if I have dynamic IP and I want to use ssh?

Connection works basically, I just do not have the proper DISPLAY variable.

Re: DISPLAY for ssh and dynamic IP?

 
The DISPLAY variable is configured correctly by ssh server and you don't need to adjust it even though your PC has a dynamic IP address.

At the command field of Xstart, you can enter either:

/usr/bin/X11/xterm -ls

or

/usr/bin/X11/xterm -ls -display $DISPLAY

The DISPLAY variable is configured correctly with a dynamic IP address.
