On my client PC I'm running Windows 10 and I have installed XMing and Xming Fonts.
I am running Putty and I have configured it to enable X11 Forwarding. I have tried leaving the X display location blank (as default) and also with the value
On my server I'm running Ubuntu on AWS. I edited the /etc/ssh/ssh_config file to include the following two lines:
ForwardX11 yes ForwardX11Trusted yes
I also installed xauth using
sudo apt-get install xauth
Whenever I try to run an application, like
xterm & or
xclock I get the same error:
PuTTY X11 proxy: Unsupported authorisation protocol Error: Can't open display: localhost:10.0
I've combed the Internet and found a number of other people reporting the same problem, but no clear fix, at least that has worked for me. Anybody else solved this problem?
