How can I ssh -Y ?

Hi All,

I want to 'ssh -Y username@host'. However, XShell ignores the '-Y' option, and identify '-Y username' as the username instead...

Does anyone know how to set connection options, like -X or -Y, when using XShell?

Thank you in advance!

Re: How can I ssh -Y ?

Xshell does not recognize the '-Y' and '-X' parameters.

The X11 forwarding of Xshell is trusted. Any connection must be trusted when using ssh regardless of '-Y' or '-X', unless you are making an X connection with XDMCP.
