Re: SSH = X11 forwarding?



Ryan,
You probably need to run
----
xhost <address of server>
----
on the client machine.

Best,
Antonio

Hi. Runnning up to date Sid, yes even with the Xorg v7. I'm trying the very simple "forward X11 over SSH" and it isn't working.

The remote and local /etc/sshd_config has "X11Forwarding yes" and "X11DisplayOffset 10", the /etc/ssh_config locally had
==========
Host *
#   ForwardX11 no
==========

so I changed that to "yes", removed the # and restarted sshd just in case that makes any difference.

The environment variable on the far end DISPLAY never gets set, which has allways (ok, several years ago) seemed to just happen when.

Suggestions?

Curt-


What do you see when you use verbose(ssh -v)?
