Audio SSH forwarding

Someone asked if it is possible to forward audio through SSH in the same way that SSH allows you to forward X sessions.

The answer is yes and the means to make it happen is called the Enlightened Sound Daemon, or eSounD. Just google for "eSounD" for more information about forwarding audio over SSH and if you want to forward audio to your Windows machine then google for "eSounD cygwin".

I hope that this helps your multimedia experience while using SSH, if you have any comments please let me know and if you have any other questions which you'd like me to answer for free please send them to Ben Dash at
