Getting through a Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router

 
Hi,

Does anyone know if there's a tested, proven way to use Xmanager with a
Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router? Right now I use WebTermX
administrator but they don't offer a way to do this. I called LinkSys
and they don't know what Xwindows is, and they say they generally just
don't support Unix. I can bypass the router, but that means using SBC
Pacbell's flaky DSL software which constantly crashes and takes down my
network drivers with it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Ben

Unfortunately we don't have a specific experience with Linksys Router.
Generally you can use SSH protocol in Xstart program to launch an xterm or other X applications in DSL environment. It requires an SSH server installed in Unix server. For more information on SSH, please visit at:

http://www.openssh.com/

If you are trying to use XDMCP or CDE session with Xmanager, you should configure
port-forwarding options in the router. It's a little bit difficult.

For further assistance, please let us know more information on your PC and Unix machine.

We hope this could help you.

Hi, thanks for responding.

My PC software is Windows 2000/NT / Intel Pentium 586.
The Unix server is a Sun Ultra running Solaris 7.
If you need any more information, please let me know.

Best,
Ben

Please see article no. 82 for more help

 
Linksys router has a port forwarding feature that can route incoming connections to other PCs. This is a little bit difficult but required. Please see article no. 82 in this forum for more help.
