That makes sense.

As far as using Putty to tunnel to IBM i over SSH I do this all the time with standard apps such as FTP, Telnet, all the iAccess Servers, the IBM Navigator for i, etc. I'm certain you are familiar with the X11 forwarding setup in Putty which is where I enter all the ports and where to forward them and the IP address to listen on locally. Of course I don't enter the long list there I paste the string into the "PortForwardings" key for my connection using regedit. Once that is in there I have never had to do anything on IBM i for it to work.

You are above my pay grade with the xterm stuff there but I can't imagine this wouldn't work for that as well.

For the tunneling via X11 from one IBM i to another I'm not saying it would or wouldn't work but I'm betting someone out there knows more. Logically it seems it should.

I want to access this systems X11 client apps (xterm, etc) from my laptop
running Windows 10, running the XMing (
http://www.straightrunning.com/XmingNotes/) server by connecting to it via
putty and launching them from the PASE shell.

Regarding ""Do you want to access other systems from this system via X11
forwarding?, Are you suggesting I can run an X11 server on PASE somehow
from the machines console or are you just talking about SSHing into PASE
and then sshing from PASE into another system. I

The configurations differ markedly. :-)

Hello,

If I have an account on a V7.1 system with X11 installed in PASE, and I
want to enable X11 forwarding can I just
edit /QOpenSys/QIBM/UserData/SC1/OpenSSH/openssh-4.7p1/etc/sshd_config
like
I could on linux or FreeBSD?

Should I update the notes here:
http://yips.idevcloud.com/wiki/index.php/PASE/SSHSetup Or is that
specifically intended to refer to the special YIPs rpms and not that IBM
includes by default.
