	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
	line option).

	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...
