SSH X forwarding not working

At the other end, /etc/ssh/sshd_config now has the line "X11Forwarding yes"

Still no go.

When I connect, the DISPLAY value on the remote box appears null.
When I'm local, it's "localhost:0.0"

The error I receive when trying to run apps is "Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open 

When I used xhost and set DISPLAY manually, things work:

1. xhost +remote_host
2. on remote box set DISPLAY to "local_host:0.0"
3. run app, and it appears like it should!

Also, does anyone know how to cut and paste:
         1. Within X (do I have to run XWin with -emulate3buttons?), and
         2. between X and Windows?

Merci beaucoup.
