I‘ve ssh gateway behind my NAT firewall. So all users must first login to my gateway host from the internet and then login to other machines on the LAN. This works great for cli based apps. However, few users would like to run x apps from internal LAN hosts and tunnel X display through intermediate ssh gateway and display back output on their local system. For example, from localsystem user makes connection as follows:
ssh -X firstname.lastname@example.org
ssh -X email@example.com
X forwarding fails with an error:
Error: Can’t open display:
How do I fix this problem and allow users to use X apps with my intermediate Linux / BSD gateway?

Q. I’m using Gnome under Ubuntu Linux and my numeric keypad is disabled. Pressing numlock key does not work any more. I’m not able to use numbers or special symbols from numeric keypad. Reboot does not help or using different keyboard does not help. However, numlock only works if I switch to text console by pressing CTRL+ALT+F1. Now, I’m dam sure this is related to X.org or Gnome. How do I fix this problem?
