Do to firewall issues, sometimes it is impossible to run a local copy of
389-console that can connect on all the correct ports. On the other hand,
I'msure we have all experienced how slow 389-console is over ssh.
To work around this, I install xpra on my server and remote client.
Now I can do a:
This first starts 389-console on the server with X going to a headless
X server. Then the local machine connects to that server. Finally when
done, the server at the distant end is closed. This is optional. You
could leave it running all the time.
Benefit is really fast 389-console with only firewall holes for ssh port.
