Check to see if you're trying to forward X11 ("ForwardX11 yes" in the
"/etc/ssh/ssh_config" file) on Fedora.  If so, that may be the cause
of the message if X isn't allowed by the remote host or it doesn't have
X installed.  You can also check /var/log/secure on the remote host to
see what it doesn't like.

putty for Windows can't do X11 forwarding as Windows doesn't have an
X11 server.
