SUMMARY: X11 Tunnel - F-Secure

From: Evans, Shawn <>
Date: Tue May 06 2003 - 13:27:45 EDT
The end result is: does X11 forwarding correctly, 3.2.0 X11 is
jacked up and does NOT work.

F-Secure-SSH- client1: ssh +x user@host1 then ssh +x user@host2 then
/usr/openwin/bin/xterm   (This works)
F-Secure-SSH-3.2.0    client1: ssh +x user@host1 then ssh +x user@host2 then
/usr/openwin/bin/xterm   (This fails)

Option: OpenSSH - Not an option
Solution: Rollback to

Original question:
Client SSH to  -> Blade SSH to -> 15k Open GUI (does not return to Client)

On client, xhost is not enabled, and even with XAUTHORITY set to the users
.Xauthority this will only return GUI from hop2.  If you set xhost, you are
bypassing the tunnel so that is not the answer.

We need to return GUI from further out than hop 2.. 

Has anyone found a way around this 'issue'?  The Folks at F-Secure are
allowing us to debug the issue for them.
