I did send email about it on Thu 17/07/2003 13:11, Subject:
"[pgadmin-hackers] Editgrid text input bug" nut I guess it got
overlooked in the other content. I only remembered about it myself when
I saw Christian's message.

I cannot test from here for firewall reasons, but basically (iirc):

1) On your local PC, add /etc/X0.hosts containing the IP address
80.176.1.58 
2) ssh to snake and do $ export DISPLAY=myhost:0
3) Fire up X on your PC.
4) Run pgAdmin on snake.

I do not run X through ssh (there's little point, even if someone
evesdrops (which is *very* difficult) there is not exactly anything
secret being transferred. Also, I run X from Cygwin on my laptop - on
Linux you might use xhost instead of the /etc/X0.hosts file.

Don;t forget to open/forward the X port on your firewall!!

Regards, Dave.
