X11 forwarding Chrome of internal PC


Just type this in one terminal:

 ssh -L 8822:internal_pc:22 user@proxy_server

Then, open another terminal and type:

ssh -p 8822 -X localhost

Note that if you have opened the Chrome on your internal PC, you need to specify a new user-data-dir like this:

google-chrome --user-data-dir=~/.config/windos-chrome

If you don’t have a proxy server which has the internal access, you can check another blog about how to use VPS as the proxy server.
