  11. This file contains some lines that have a # at the beginning. The ONLY line that does not have a # in front of it should say the word localhost. If there is no such line please add it.
  12. Now save, and close this file.
  13. Click OK.
  14. Go to the Start Button and select Programs, then Hummingbird Connectivity, then Exceed, then click on the Exceed icon to start the program.
  15. Now you can use an SSH client to connect to the remote system.
  16. After connecting, any graphical program that is run from the command prompt will appear on the screen of the local computer.
