I'm almost positive this has nothing to do with JSP, but I'm not sure where else to put it.

hi David,....
Thanks for your reply.but in "com.sshtools.j2ssh.forwarding.ForwardingClient" class having method called enableX11Forwarding and "SessionChannelClient" class having "requestX11Forwarding" method.
i am not able use these 2 methods in correct (syntax & sematics) way.

i need some sample code to use them.

Can you use SSH with X-Windows formatting directly? From a shell, etc.?

ssh -X otherhost....

should support proper X-windows applications.

Often, the "display" is not setup properly on the Linux/Unix side
