Response to: ssh?

ssh is like "telnet" except it's secure. Gomez is obviously a machine name.

just type 'ssh <machine>' from a command prompt. Or type 'man ssh' to see what ssh is all about ;-)

    Following your advice, I get this output:

    % ssh Gomez
    ssh: Gomez: no address associated with hostname.

    I'll try to delve through the man page, although they seem to be written for powerusers, not for someone who is interested in a 'Hands on X11' article.

      The server "Gomez" is running on the author's network. The whole "remote X11" stuff ONLY makes sense if you have multiple servers to manage. This is generally "power users".

      While X11 on Mac is neat, it is probably not the best "learning environment" in much the same way as learning to drive on a automatic transmission car is probably not the best training for getting accustomed to logging trucks...
