    I've used TSM a lot in the past, but I'm just now setting up a new TSM environment after a couple years of being away from it.

    I installed a version 8.1.3 system (utilizing the 8.1.2 linux client because I didn't see a 8.1.3 linux client). I was surprised to get a message that the Web GUI is no longer supported
    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSEQVQ_8.1.2/client/c_bac_webclient_deprecate.html

    Basically it says to use the Java client (dsmj) instead. I decided to try this with X11 forwarding to see if that would work. I got xclock working, but dsmj doesn't ever fully open. What I get is a blank grey Xming window on my desktop with a "loading" icon.

    Anyone successfully using dsmj with X11 forwarding?

    I have 8.1.2.0 on CentOS 7.3. Able to use ssh -Y <[email protected]> and then run dsmj. Comes up just fine. Using SWAN running on a Windows Server 2012 as the ssh client.
    Are you using untrusted or trusted forwarding?
