I would consider using /etc/ssh/sshd_config (or where ever you have it)

Onderwerp: problem with X forwarding
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I don't know if this is the right list to post about this problem, but I'm
reaching the desperate state.
I'm ssh from computer A to computer B, running a X application in B
to be shown in A's X server.
X forwarding is enabled in both computers, A and B in both,
/etc/ssh/ssh_config and /etc/ssh/sshd_config.
But when I run the application a get this error:
_X11TransSocketOpen: socket() failed for tcp
_X11TransSocketOpenCOTSClient: Unable to open socket for tcp
_X11TransOpen: transport open failed for tcp/localhost:11
Error: Can't open display: localhost:11.0
Do you have any idea of what may happen ?
In A, I was able to connect when I was running Ark Linux, the problem
when I installed Gentoo so, I may say, the problem is in A since B didn't
suffer any deep change.
Any clue would be nice.
