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

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

ssh X-forwarding and remote forwarding behind proxy

Hi, from my workplace we use a proxy to connect to the outside world, including external ssh servers.
