Thanks Armin. I am doing it with with an ssh config file that sets the X11 forwarding via a config file entry

The fact that the display is correctly set as I ssh though the two machines tells us that the X11 is forwarded - I am not sure why the xterm does not pop up.

PRODUCT: SuSE Linux (I386) 9.0
I have a problem opening an Xterm window on my Suse linux machine (SL)
after I ssh (with X11 forwarding) to a remote machine (RM).

One other important issue: to reach to my remote machine I ssh twice:

1. Suse Linux to remote account management machine (RAM).
2. RAM to RM ( where I finally want the xterm to run)


- --> Have you tried to enable X11 forwarding explicitely with the "-X"
option?

SL: ssh -X user@RAM
RAM: ssh -X user@RM

I'm doing the same thing as you do and I can confirm that this setup
is working with a SuSE system.

Good luck!
Armin
