Re: Problems with SSH and X11

Hi Christophe,

  thanks for taking the time.

  I double checked the syntax with the man pages and I believe I already set 
it up this way ... with no success.

black:/etc/ssh# grep orward *
ssh_config:    ForwardAgent yes
ssh_config:    ForwardX11 yes
sshd_config:X11Forwarding yes

rock:/etc/ssh# grep orward * | grep -v '#'
ssh_config:ForwardX11 yes
ssh_config:ForwardAgent yes
sshd_config:X11Forwarding yes

  And the result is still the same?! 

black:/etc/ssh# ssh -X root@rock
root@rock's password:
Linux rock 2.4.18-bf2.4 #1 Son Apr 14 09:53:28 CEST 2002 i686 GNU/Linux

  Do you know what part SSH2 plays here? I am always doing the config changes 
in /etc/ssh not in /etc/ssh2.
