Re: remote x via ssh question

sorry about that, i should have been more specific.

i have my sshd_config file set up on both machines to allow X11Forwarding.
i am trying to connect from my desktop (thneed) to my server (truffula.net).   

forrest@thneed:~$ ssh -X truffula.net
forrest@truffula.net's password: 
Last login: Mon Jan  1 14:41:42 2001 from
[forrest@truffula forrest]$ bluefish
channel 0: istate 4 != open
channel 0: ostate 64 != open
Gdk-ERROR **: X connection to truffula.net:10.0 broken (explicit kill or server

i can do it just fine if i export the DISPLAY to my ip, however i've talked to
people who have told me there is no need fo this if ssh is configured to
forward x.
