tenletxr(1) forward X-connections backwards.


tenletxr [-l username ] [-k ] host [port ]


The tenletxr program enables forwarding of X-connections from this machine to host host If port is given, that port will be used instead of the default.

The supported options are:

Log in on the remote host as user username
Disables keep-alives.


To login from host foo to host bar (where your display is), you might do the following.

  1. On foo: tenletxr bar
  2. You will get a new shell where you will be able to start X clients that will show their windows on bar


It currently checks if you have permission to run it by checking if you own /dev/console on the remote host.
