[GRLUG] Configure X Forwarding with port other than 22 for SSH

My recommendation: ditch X forwarding and switch to Xvnc. It is a lot
easier to deal with since you only need to tunnel one port.
Other option: install openvpn on the edge of your lab network. It is easy
and gives you wide open access to the lab. Very convenient.
