I used to open applications at other machines with SuSE 8.2 and
all that was required was to activate X11Forwarding in /etc/ssh/sshd_config.
In 9.1 X11Forwarding comes activated by default but the forwarding
doesn't seem to work as before. I still can get a remote window open
when I log in from an 8.2 machine into a 9.1 machine, and DISPLAY
is set to 'localhost:10.0', as it used to do.
But when I log into an 8.2 machine from 9.1, DISPLAY is set
to 'origin.machine:0.0' and the remote host says it can't open the
Also, when I log in from another 9.1 machine, DISPLAY is empty.
Setting it to 'origin.machine:0.0' or 'origin.machine:10.0' or
'localhost:10.0' doesn't work either.
In all cases 'X11UseLocalhost' is active.
What should I set to recover the old behaviour?
