How to use xauth?
There is a host S, and a client L, S has start X Window, and L doesn't. now I do this:
L$ xclock -display S:0 &
The window will be shown at S.

S# xhost -
to enable contrl list, the L will be refused the next time because it isn't on the list.

At last I want make a user on L could do this:
S$ xauth extract - $DISPLAY | ssh -l USER L /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth merge -
But it still be refused. What's wrong? Is there any problem of my understanding?

thank you.

I have no idea what that second line is supposed to do - try just running "xhost + L" on S.
