    Now that iSSH seems to be missing from the app store (I got my first iPad this month - an iPad Pro 9.7"), is there any alternative that will let you do x11 forwarding?

    I want to be able to ssh into a remote Linux server like "ssh -X <user>@<hostname>" and type in something like "firefox" and get the application to run on the remote server, but show up on the iPad. This type of thing would be super useful for college where I have remote access to lab resources. Thank you!

    I would love to get one. For now, I use Reflection, but it doesn't do x11 fowarding.

    Thank you for the suggestion! I know that x11 is MIT-licensed, so at least it's not excluded from the App Store if someone decides to make an App for it. (so far as I know - I'm not a lawyer)
