To see windows of programs running on other machines, I used to

on local_machine type "xhost +"
ssh into remote machine and type
"export DISPLAY=local_machine_address:0"
then I would run the program on the remote machine and receive the window on the local machine

I see that it doesn't work anymore with SUSE 9.1. What changed?

Ah, and I know about ssh -X, that works, but I don't really need encryption, just speed.
