-Y is recommended. Did you check that -N is necessary?

No, it won't! You're running already an X server on your local host.  
It will be something like :0. The remote host will have another  
number, :1 perhaps, or :0.1.

I don't think so. SSH is just another application. The ssh programme  
has the -v or -vv or -vvv option to find the cause of a failure.  
There can also be restrictions from the ssh configuration files on  
local and on remote host!

I'm no OpenSSH guru. You'll find on the regular GNU Emacs list  
mailto:help-gnu-emacs at gnu.org better support.



The box said "Use Windows 95 or better," so I got a Macintosh.
