Hi Anders

The .Xauthority on the remote side was the problem.

I would have never found it on my own, thank You!

I thought that it is "this end" that has the fault, because it is a new
installation, and the server was never touched.

But it was wrong thought..

I removed the .Xauthority file, and now it work perfectly!

Thanx again
