Re: SSH X11 forwarding
:When I try to ssh to a host using X fowarding, and I try running X
:applications such as emacs,
:the applications are abruptly closed. I get errors like:
:X Error of failed request: BadAccess (attempt to access private
:I installed OpenSSH 3.6.1 from ports, and everything works fine.
:Although this could be an issue with the host,
:is there a specific reason that OpenSSH 3.9 is included with the system
:instead of a 3.6?
Well, generally speaking more recent version are more desireable, if only
from a security perspective. We have had a few bug reports of some
oddness occuring with ssh so its possible that there is a compatibility
issue between the newer ssh's and older ones, but we aren't going to
revert back to an older version.
I have no problems running xemacs over an ssh link between my workstation
and my test box, but both are running 3.9. So it seems likely that
there's a protocol issue between your hosts. Unless we specified some
build options wrong (which is quite possible), I'm not sure if there is
much we can do about it.
