Whenever I try to
ssh -X or
-Y into a remote Linux server from my Mac (OSX Mavericks) machine, I get the same message:
"Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding."
I have tried several ideas that I found on SO threads, e.g. adding the following
Host * ForwardX11 yes ForwardX11Trusted yes
.ssh/config file (which is equivalent to always doing
ssh -Y), deleting the
.Xauthority file in the server, etc.
Why does this happen?
Most importantly, when I try to open a remote window (e.g. using
ssh -Y, and then opening a plot in Python), I get the following message:
Could not find ':' in DISPLAY: xxx.yyy.net : Fatal IO error: client killed
