No expert needed: http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/fc3/x86/
  --> read about the OpenSSH changes!

In addition see the OpenSSH FAQ:

Alexander,

Thanks a lot for your information. The problem has been solved after reading the documentation you gave. In addition, I found DISPLAY of remote host needs not to be set anymore. Actually I cannot open the GUI if I set it to my local display. Do you have any idea of this?

Thanks,
Jinming
