i cannot ssh forward, through my "ipcop" guest
( In the host system i have made it
"visible" via "ip addr add broadcast + dev

Here's what i get when i try to run firestarter or
nedit or xterm for example:

ipcop:~# firestarter
X11 connection rejected because of wrong
The application 'firestarter' lost its connection to
the display localhost:10.0;
most likely the X server was shut down or you
the application.
ipcop:~# nedit
X11 connection rejected because of wrong
X connection to localhost:10.0 broken (explicit kill
or server shutdown).

Here's the /etc/ssh/sshd_config of the "ipcop" server:
# Package generated configuration file
# See the sshd(8) manpage for details

# What ports, IPs and protocols we listen for
Port 22
# Use these options to restrict which
interfaces/protocols sshd will bind to

# HostKeys for protocol version 2

Any ideas? I have been searching for a couple days,
but found nothing. Is this a routing, firewall issue
maybe? I do not know a lot about networking. I hope i
will learn through VServer :)
