Problems running graphic interface in a remote host

Thu Jul 21 17:11:00 GMT 2011

Hi, I posted this issue in the Cygwin forum and was advised to post it here:

I've installed the new Gygwin set in my computer and I can't seem to start
any graphic interface in a remote host, for instance:

(C)SUMFO$ xclock &
[1]     973
(C)SUMFO$ Xlib: connection to "" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Error: Can't open display:

[1] +  Done(1)                 xclock &

The DISPLAY variable is fine, I've enabled X11 forwarding (I've tried also
without enabling this option):

ForwardX11 yes

but it's still failing, I've googled for this issue with cygwin but couldn't
find anything, any help would be appreciated
