Well, both ends of the ssh suite have to allow X Forwarding.
For the client, it seems to be working ok, since you can
forward from your Mandrake box (you can use the -X command
But the server has to allow forwarding connections also. You
can see how it is configured seeing /etc/ssh/sshd_config
(assuming the Solaris box is running OpenSSH).
Hope this helps, Roger...
