Does anyone have a fix for it not working in Yosemite? Apparently the problem is OpenSSH rather than XQuartz.

I'm not able to get this working in the final version. Anyone else having issues?

Thanks,

Not sure what you mean. Has worked for me since I first updated to Yosemite (I'm using it frequetly over a VPN connection to my work).

What is you issue ?

So trying to install some software on some linux systems, I use to be able to Xwindows / X11 to forward the setup wizards to my local Macbook on OSX.

I no longer can do that, and it doesn't give me any meaningful errors on the server logs. I can forward the xwindows just fine to my windows box...and I was able to do it on OSX Mavericks. But since the upgrade, it looks as if it's broken.

[aahmad@schnell ~]$ xclock
Error: Can't open display: 10.0.142.136:0

My IP is correct for my Macbook.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Ok, all the stupid questions:

Clean install or install on top of existing install?
XQuartz installed?
Xserver running?
Did an xhost + on Mac to allow access?

Folks have had success by reinstalling XQuartz.

Answers below, in BOLD:

Clean install or install on top of existing install?
Exiting install, upgraded from OSX Mavericks.

XQuartz installed?
Reinstalled XQuarts this morning, latest version 2.7.7

Xserver running?
I believe so, is there a command I can run to confirm this?

Did an xhost + on Mac to allow access?
Yes, I ran the above command.

I tried removing XQuarts, and reinstalling, unfortunately I got the same result. I also disabled my firewall completely. If you need any additional information, please let me know. Thanks!
