On Xauth Key, I keep getting an error message that says "warning: untrusted x11 forwarding setup failed: xauth key data not generated". Is there anything I can do to fix this? Please help if you can.

Untrusted" in this context means you don't trust the connection. SSH will use additional security measures to try to make X11 forwarding safer. "Trusted" means you are entirely confident that no on on the remote host will get access to your Xauth data and use it to monitor your keystrokes for instance.

  1. Enable the first option in Security tab of preferences (Cmd-,) which enables authenticated connections.
  2. edit ~/.ssh/config, add XAuthLocation /opt/X11/bin/xauth to the host config.
  3. ssh -X you_server works in a secure maner.
  4. Ensure xauth is installed to the destination host.
