emacs GUI through SSH?
I have heard some people saying it is possible to use an emacs GUI on a remote machine using a combination of SSH and X tunneling and maybe some other programs. Does anyone know how to do this? As of now I am using just SSH Secure Shell, but I don't think it has X tunneling, although i'm pretty sure putty does. Anyways, if you know how to do this please try to help me out. Thank you.
I used to do this all the time, but Linux-to-UNIX, never on Windows. According to the following document, it should "just work" as long as your Windows X server is set up in a sane manner:

when I try to start up emacs, I get: " Connection lost to X server 'localhost:12.0' "
EDIT: ok I figured it out, I wasn't starting X server, ;)
by the way, nice avatar perspective. love WC3, and dota (though not very good at the latter). Thanks again.
