Hi, I've set up X11Forwarding on several linux servers before, but I've just wasted a day trying (unsuccessfully) to figure out why I can't get it working on freebsd (7.0-RELEASE GENERIC).
I have not changed the defaults in the sshd_config file. One the client computer: $ xhost + $ ssh -Y 192.ip.of.server Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding. /usr/local/bin/xauth: creating new authority file /home/xxx/.Xauthority /usr/local/bin/xauth: (stdin):1: bad display name "unix:10.0" in "remove" command /usr/local/bin/xauth: (stdin):2: bad display name "unix:10.0" in "add" command [xxx@ ~] kcalc X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication. kcalc: Fatal IO error: client killed [xxx@ ~] ls -a .Xauth* <no results> Now, when I go to the server and login directly, and do a startx, the x server starts fine, but there's still no .Xauthority file in the home directory. I find that odd. This also looks strange to me: [xxx@ ~] ps -aux | grep X root 1470 0.0 2.7 65456 13668 v0 S 4:01PM 0:01.24 X :0 -auth /home/xxx/.serverauth.1451 (Xorg) [xxx@ ~] ls -a /home/xxx/.serverauth* <no results> How could it authenticate with a non-existent file? Any pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
