Cygwin/X Authentication Config Issue

Thu Nov 2 03:10:00 GMT 2006

I am trying to use a W2K laptop to run Cygwin/X but I keep getting a connection
refused, xlib no protocol error when I try to run remote windows by SSH into
BSD/Linux boxes. So I tried to setup Cygwin/X on my W2K PC, another box, which
had a MI/X server.  I have no problem with MI/X - I always get the displays. 
But on this W2K PC I have the same problem with Cygwin/X - and my PC firewall
requests connection when the port 6000 packets come in - the xserver is refusing
the connection.  So it sounds like an authentication issue.  Do I have to do
something with xauth to get this working?
