one that solves for you.

paste your own code as well to see it happen.

X11 Port Forwarding
We've seen how to connect to turing with text only (Putty or Terminal) and
how to get a full graphical connection with NX Client. If you want to connect
from home or your laptop, need graphics, but don't want to run NX Client (which is slow),
consider using X11 port forwarding.
- For the Mac
- Use the -X option to ssh:
ssh -X email@example.com
- For Windows
You can do X11 forwarding with X-Deep/32 and PuTTY.
Here's a link to a page with directions:
(skip to Step 3). Note that you'll need the freeware X-Deep/32 (see the directions link), and not the trial version of the pay software.
