Hello,

This is my issue, my remote machine (CentOS 6.3, hosted in Azure windows environment) has an application that I need to test on my local box (CentOS
6.4, a laptop behind a router).

Now, this is what I’m doing and the issue that I’m encountering:
Local:
$ xhost +
$ SSH -X someusername@somehostname.net -p 49283

Remote:
$ export DISPLAY2.168.1.6:0.0
$ xclock

… and nothing, it just sits there and no xclock shows up :( . I’m fairly convinced that this is due to my router, but I don’t know how to deal with it. Any ideas? Am I
way off in my guess?
