View Full Version : [ubuntu] X Forwarding Problem

September 18th, 2011, 04:00 AM
I'm having a problem with xforwarding from an ubuntu desktop to an OS X environment. I've changed all the /etc/ssh/sshd_config files on ubuntu, and was wondering if this is a problem with OS X or an ongoing problem.

I just ran into this problem after patching today.

Luckily I was able to work out the issue. In my case, the update seemed to turn on xhost server access control.

sudo xhost
access control enabled, only authorized clients can connect

To turn it off:

sudo xhost +
access control disabled, clients can connect from any host

Hopefully, this works for you!
