Description David Walser 2021-05-19 00:05:58 CEST
PuTTY 0.75 has been released on May 8:

One change I don't believe they listed is that it supports rsa-sha2-256 and rsa-sha2-512, which is important as some SSH servers don't support rsa-sha1 any more.

MGA8-64 MATE on Acer Aspire 5253
No installation issues
Ref bug 26875 for testing
Starting putty and connect to my desktop PC (opening SSH in firewall: works OK.
Tried command
$ putty -X -l prutser
could connect, changed /etc/sshd/sshd_config to allow X11Forwarding, restarted sshd, but still I could not open an X-application like kwrite. Well, I could enter the command, no error feedback, I see the process kwrite is runnng on the desktop PC, but the application window is nowhere to see.
I think my ignorance shows here .....
Can someone else test the X11Forwarding, I would agree on the OK.

Did you enable X forwarding in PuTTY?
Comment 7 Herman Viaene 2023-02-02 09:14:37 CET
Yes, that's what the "-X" at the CLI does. Anyway, I doublechecked.
