The FC3 host is the sshd server. Same for FC2: the sshd server. > Have your tried using the -v option to ssh? Or multiple -v -v -v > options to get even more verbose output. Yes.

As suggested above: $DISPLAY is set. xauth in some form or other is getting passed. I didn't previously mention: I can telnet to the port that $DISPLAY indicates: n+6000. The connection is accepted. However over half the time: tesuji-strombrg> xterm X connection to tesuji.nac.uci.edu:12.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown). Yes, I have X11UseLocalhost=no. This makes it easier to pass xauth creds across su/gsu/sudo. Thanks!
