About X on server

Hi, I don't know how you use to work with your servers. Personally I usually
connect to them thru SSh from a Windows/Linux desktop, so I use that desktop
to browse and then, in case I need to download something to the server what
I do is:

 - Download it to the desktop and upload it to the server with SSH.
 - Copy the download address and then do an '$wget http://pastedaddress' on
the ssh console window.

I hope it helps.
