I'm trying to run a remote firefox session on my vps, to try to download some large files to the server.
I've installed firefox from the apt repo remotely, and I also have firefox installed on my Ubuntu based PC.
$ssh -X root@myip
X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0
Welcome to Ubuntu 11.10 (GNU/Linux 2.6.32-308.8.2.el5.028stab101.1 x86_64)
I type the following on the server:
(firefox:6026): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.
Error: no display specified
So I see two errors: "X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0" and "Error: no display specified". I'm doing something wrong, and would like to find out what.
