X-Traffic through firewall

Hello,

I need some help to set up the firewall on a Dynamode modem router
R-ADSL C4.
HOw can I allow one specific ip address to send Xtraffic to my box?
I can telnet allright to the remote box, but after setting DISPLAY to my
box, traffix gets stuck some where.
When I used the old Binatone, the soft firewall (norton) allowed simply to set up the ip address and bob was my uncle.

On that note, is that router sufficient to communicate with the other PC connected to it or do I need a second LAN?
Wish knowledge in these things would come easier. It is all rather wizzardy stuff, networking that is.

Cheers,
Bandito.

In simple terms you forward the port you want to the ip of the box and thats it.

Details of how to do it for most routers and the ports needed are here

Rather than using telnet and opening a port on the firewall, have you considered using ssh to tunnel the X session?

I use the ssh method quite frequently and it doesn't require any additional ports to be opened.

For OpenSSH clients (most unix ones are OpenSSH) just use ssh -Y user@host

PuTTY can also do this under windows, in the connection -> ssh -> Tunnels options.

Owesome!

Thanks very much, the ip forwarding page did the trick.
Has anybody thought about meaningful defaults here?

Mane Tak!
