Question Max2 USB tethering / SSH to linux machine

Are there any users out there who ssh to their PC from onyx boox max2 via usb tethering using an Android application like juicessh or termux? If so, how did you do it? Or if not, what do you do instead? I have found connecting via the HDMI cable pretty slow and the refresh rate is lacking. All I really need is my linux terminal for text editing, so the full monitor experience is somewhat overkill for my needs and so I was hoping to find a more responsive setup for that.

I would also be curious to hear from any users who have accomplished a more responsive experience using their linux terminal environments than is available from connecting via HDMI. Thanks in advance for your help.

Ps: I have updated my firmware to the latest version.

adb reverse is the answer, for example

adb reverse tcp:8081 tcp:8081
- then localhost:8081 on Boox will open 8081 on your PC

Thanks plusz, but could you elaborate a bit regarding what this accomplishes? I may have actually been seeking out the wrong approach when asking for ssh solutions from Onyx Boox Max 2 --> my linux pc, as it would be ideal to have a solution that allows me to use my laptop keyboard to control both the max 2 and my laptop together (just like the monitor app, but with a faster response time).

To rephrase my original question: how can I set up the onyx boox max 2 to act as a secondary monitor an alternative way than connecting via HDMI so that experience is more responsive and primary objective is to basically have a terminal window (from my host computer) displayed on the max 2?

Sorry if I am over complicating this, but thanks for your help I appreciate it!

Have a look at the thread on Boox Max as monitor. It's pretty long but user mdp has very helpful information there on how to use adb reverse in order to establish a vnc connection with a vnc client app on the ereader (eg bvnc) and a vnc server in you're Linux device.
