Dear Sir,
When I try to log remote server via xmanager, user id and password are successfully attempt but after enter password it show error

The X11 Forwarding request was rejected! to solve the problem please turn on the X11 forwarding feature.

I had checked /etc/ssh/sshd_config file there X11forwarding is set 'yes'.

Please help.

This problem may occur when:

1. Try disabling the SeLinux and try again. To do this, use the 'setenforce 0' command.
2. SSH server has not been restarted after making the changes. Restarting the server will restart SSHD.
3. User does not have write permission issue. Try running the session with a root user account.

Also, I recommend you to read this forum article. http://www.netsarang.com/bbs/detail.html?id=xmanager&num=1847&page=1&s_select=0&s_text=x11+forwarding+rejected+
