I removed the -nolisten tcp options to the X executable. Like Show 0 Likes(0) Actions 3. echo $DISPLAY returns "localhost:10.0". thank you for your time and suggestion. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=108695
To find out if this is the case, see if the X server is started with the -nolisten tcp argument, and if so, remove it. To confirm that ssh is forwarding X11, check for a line containing Requesting X11 forwarding in the ssh -v -X output. check 126.96.36.199. So set the IP manually, as harrymc suggests: export DISPLAY="127.0.0.1:10.0" Then X11 programs should be fine.
If there are any X11 programs there, it's very likely that xauth will be there.
