X Forwarding broke

X Forwarding has quit working on only 2 of our AIX Servers.

ssh -X -vvv host

That shows it requesting the X11 forward auth spoofing.
No errors.

echo $DISPLAY shows the display variable

However when I execute xclock.... nothing... Kinda like it just hangs and for some reasons it does not show any verbose output.

Have verified our sshd_config matches on all our servers.

Fixed. After digging through about 100 forums. The loopback interface did not have an IP associated with it....

Any special reason why ou are using xforwarding ?

I was using it for some of Tivoli and Oracle installations
but on my connection it was really slow.
Like 30 sec delay between click and action.

Right now when I am doing installation I am using vnc
it is much faster. You can find vnc server on Linux Toolbox
