    RonaId,

    Sounds like X11Forwarding is set on your local sytstem, but there is no
    X11 server running.

    It's not really critical, unless you want to run X11 applications over
    your ssh connection.

    If you do, start X11 before connecting to the remote system.

    Thanks for the reaction Joe, the xserver is running on the local
    machine - and also on the remote. x11 forwarding to a linux machine
    works, to a solaris-9 fails (DISPLAY has no value and starting xclock
    etc. fails).

    don't ask me why but X11Forwarding had a duplicate entry in sshd_config on
    the remote - solaris - system. The first had no and the last had yes. I
    expected the second one to over rule the fist one ... so I removed the second
    entry and updated the first to "X11Forwarding yes" restarted the daemon et
    voila !

    I still do get the
    Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.
    and this is a little unexpected for me; it seems to work now. Normally I
    don't expect a warning when something succeeds. Maybe it has an important
    meaning like 'encryption is not working' but I just don't lnow what it really
    means.

    Hmm.

    Not sure what to suggest then. I only see that message if I'm not
    running X11 on my PowerBook.

    Does it still give that message if you initiate your connection from an
    xterm running on the Mac?

    Yes. It's a warning message and I don't know what it really means. The
    forwarding is working now - there was a slight glitch in the solaris
    sshd_config.
