    =>For some reason my X11 forwarding seems to be busted.
    =>openssh-3.7.1p1-1 on a Red Hat 9 system
    =>Here's the relevant stuff from my /etc/sshd_config file:
    =>#GatewayPorts no
    =>X11Forwarding yes
    =>#X11Forwarding no
    =>#X11DisplayOffset 10
    =>#X11UseLocalhost yes
    =>What else do I need to do?

    I'm really stumped here. After I enabled it as described above I did a
    restart on the server and there was no change. service sshd restart

    Then I decided to shut the server down and do a start. No change.
    service sshd stop
    service sshd start

    This morning I ssh'd into my box and X11Forwarding is now working like a
    champ. No clue why it now works or why it didn't before. I suspect my
    vendor sold me some non-deterministic ram and processors. :-(
