Well, I tried it, with no luck. It was not clear (anywhere I looked)Quote:>Or in default section (and 'ForwardX11 no' for hosts without X):
whether these config directives should reside in the local machine or
in the remote machine (I would appreciate clarification on this
point), so I put them in both. In both machines, I have identical
files ~/.ssh/config, with contents:
# beginning of ~/.ssh/config
# end of ~/.ssh/config
Then I log on via ssh to the remote machine, and once I'm in, at the
remote machine's prompt I type:
% echo $DISPLAY
and get nothing back; i.e. the DISPLAY variable is not set. Of
course, all X-based programs fail at this point, with a "can't open
How can I troubleshoot this?
Could the X forwarding failure have anything to do with the fact that
I'm connecting to the remote machine via ADSL? I use Verizon's ADSL
with Roaring Penguin's pppoe software.
