vnc over ssh on port 1352--> wrong authentication...?


I log in to my router1 and loop me back port 5900. On "router1" is a vncserver running well on Display 2. It runs well unencrypted. I do this:
ssh -p 1352 -L 5900:router1:5900 testuser@router1
after i entered my pwd, I'm in. But if I start now "vncviewer" it messages me that:
X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication.
X connection to localhost:10.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
the same effect with:
xhost localhost:2
so does my router1, if I choose to loop me back port 5902 (cause it's running on display2...just a try)
ssh -p 1352 -L 5902:router1:5902 testuser@router1
I researched the internet and followed this advice:
        export DISPLAY
now my router1's coming up with this error:
Xlib: connection to "localhost:2.0" refused by server
Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server
Error: Can't open display: localhost:2
all neede Paths are set in the $PATH-variable...and my knowledge... according to that...hmmm
please help
thanks for advises...
p.s.: I am aware that my ssh-service's running on port 1352 (lotus), but that didn't affect looping or x-forwarding until now. Does it affect maybe now this connection? I don't think...why should it?
