i've looked everywhere and i cant find anything for this.. It's easy to forward a gui app from a server to client using ssh.. but how do you forward one thats already been active on the server.. for example. im running amsn on the server, how do i get that active user session to my client laptop? without starting a new active session.. I'm sure it's easy, just cant find the info. sort of a remote desktop thing without the entire desktop.

Sorry I don't follow what you're asking.

An SSH tunnel can forward local traffic to the remote network, or remote traffic to the local network.

But, you'll always need to start a new TCP connection to do that - intercepting an active session will not work (the DST/SRC IP's will be completely different). It would need to be a new session...

Is that what you're asking?

no no, i mean like an active program on the service. an active pid. like to forward a running and in use application. like if i was running a bash prompt on my server, could i view that open bash prompt through ssh. can i forward an active pid i guess you could say.
