Thanks to all who responded ....
The soloution was :
Hosts.allow should have
sshd sshdfwd-X11 : localhost 107.107.107. 107.107.108.
The problem was:
I'm trying to configure SSH to forward X11 through a firewall, with
TCP wrappers on both machines. My client is on one class C address, the
server is on a different class C behind a firewall, which does not allow X
connections to pass through.
SSH ver 1.2.25
TCP_WRAPPERS ver 7.6
Sparc 5 (client)
Sparc 5 (server)
I log into the clinet on the console.
I ssh to the server
My Display is set properly (server:10.0)
When I start an xterm (or any other X program) I get the message
XIO: fatal IO error 131 (Connection reset by peer) on X server "server:14.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
The client has the following message logged in /var/adm/messages.
Aug 18 12:50:15 client sshd: error: Fwd X11 connection from server
refused by tcp_wrappers.
file: hosts.allow on client & server
SSH: LOCAL 107.107.107. 107.107.108.
file: hosts.deny on client & server
if I put
ALL: LOCAL 107.107.107. 107.107.108. in hosts.allow on the client
everything works fine, but this is not an option.
