Speed up X11 forwarding via ssh with Xshell

 
Hi

I want to use matlab via ssh with Xshell 4.0 under windows 7 64bit

The server with Ubuntu is 12.10


but with Xming server it's running very slow(with matlab 2013a it's take about 10 or more minutes to open)

I found some way to speed up X11 Forwarding with ciphers

ssh -c arcfour,blowfish-cbc -Y -C username@server

but after I enter the command line it's will make

-c arcfour,blowfish-cbc -Y -C username

as my username!

How to speed up the X11 forwarding with Xshell?


Program Ver. : Xshell 4

Xshell and Xming are two completely different products. Xshell is a terminal emulator and Xming is a PC X server. It looks like Matlab speeds up if you select Arcfour and Blowfish-cbc. If you want to use these encryption algorithm, go to the session properties and SSH > Security. From the encryption list, select Arcfour or Blowfish-cbc.
