Ubuntu blocking X11 solution

My servers are OpenSuSe and my personal machine is Ubuntu. On a local area network, I can run my X11 editor and edit files on the server. But remotely, like from home, it was not clear.

This did it. Add to /etc/ssh/ssh_config

ClearAllForwardings yes

I also explicitly set the ssh server

X11Forwarding yes

it is not clear if this is the default

Today (2010-12-29), I also noted in /etc/ssh/ssh_config

ForwardX11 yes
