Hi group.
I've seen a post thathis group that talks about X11Forwarding but it
couldn't help me, so I hope that you could help me.
I've got 2 Slackware boxes, one is connected to Internet and is my real
server (SSH, DHCP, Samba, Firewall, etc). The other is running on my
notebook, from where I want to open an X11 connection to the server.
I know that I have to configure /etc/ssh/sshd_config to give support to
that.
My sshd_config file has got this lines:

AllowTcpForwarding yes
X11Forwarding yes
X11DisplayOffset 10
X11UseLocalhost yes

The i make this:
ssh -X ns
nuno@ns:~$X

It seems that it starts connecting (I can see the screen of my server
changing) but it freezes with this messages at the command line:

XFree86 Version 4.3.0
Release Date: 27 February 2003
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.6

(==) Log file: "/var/log/XFree86.0.log", Time: Sun Jul 11 12:06:24 2004

Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance,
