    Could be two things..

    Is xauth command installed on the remote AIX box? Use lslpp or whence to
    find it.

    [ root@mantra401:/root ] # lslpp -h "X11.apps.config"
      Fileset Level Action Status Date Time

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Path: /usr/lib/objrepos
      X11.apps.config
                      5.1.0.0 COMMIT COMPLETE 12/18/02 12:32:29
    [ root@mantra401:/root ] # whence xauth
    /usr/bin/X11/xauth
    [ root@mantra401:/root ] #

    The other is to see if it is administratively disabled in
    /etc/ssh/sshd_config. Look for the following stanza.

          X11Forwarding yes

    Hello List,

    Iīve got a Problem to tunnel X11 over SSH.
    I connect to an AIX - Box with Openssh 3.5p1.
    I use : ssh -X root@server
    Itīs no problem to connect but the DISPLAY isnīt set.

    Any ideas ?

    Greetings
