Hello folks,

I use a tar-ssh-pipe to transfer data from a DEC-box (5.1b) to a
Solaris-8-machine. The data transfer seems to be o.k., but I get the
following warning:

Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11

I have seen this warning in this NG quite often but could somebody
explain it for an "ssh-newbie". And although the data transfer seems
to be fine, do I have to be concerned about the message ?

On both machines Open_SSH_3.7.1p2 is working.

Thanks for Your help in advance.

It probably means that X is running without any security.
