I use PuTTY to ssh into my instance via the associated floating ip address.

When in the PuTTY terminal I try to invoke a firefox web interface.

However I end up getting:

Error: no display specified

I have been on several websites that have told me I need to install Xming

so I can access a web interface.

I am aware I am a newbie and honestly it took me forever to catch on to

the floating ip address concept. Because prior to that I was trying to

use the instance ip address.

So my question is: Is there an openstack function that I can "click"

so I can access firefox installed on the server and displayed on my

desktop? or... Do I definitely need Xming?
