I'm trying to find out how I could run an instance of emacs on a remote

Currently, I'm doing this all the time with the instance of emacs
running on the local host with (server-start) in my ~/.emacs.  I'd like
to do the same, but with emacs running on the remote host.

Is this even possible, and if so, how do I tell the server to listen on
a port for network connections?

Knowledge is volatile and fluid.  Software is power.

Did you found a way to do that? I'm trying to find a way to connect from OS X 
to an emacs daemon in my vagrant box.

A crazy long time ago I did this, when networks and computers were slower and security wasn't so formidable, but it should still be doable today... and probably faster. Essentially your local machine becomes and X server, meaning your local machine's display, keyboard, mouse, etc. are used when running a command (here, emacs) on the remote machine. Wild guess would be to run locally 'ssh -X -c "emacs filename"'. But you'd likely need to configure X, Xclient, and the security bits so you don't get Denials.

I dont know Macs, so that's another game altogether. I was working with Linux on both ends. Sorry.

Please let us know what you get to work.
