Ok here's my hosts file:

# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1               localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.1.102        dan

Nope nothing else is setting the display environment variable DISPLAY.

As per the diagram below of what I'm doing, the "intermediary box" has
its envrionment variable set to "localhost:10.0" but the "remote box"
has its environment defaulted to dan:0.0. How can I get dan to send X
through the ssh connection.

my box -----> intermediary box ------> remote box (dan)

between each I am using ssh -X ( I tried -Y aswell)

Thanks

Dan
