Well, both ends of the ssh suite have to allow X Forwarding.

Hmm, well, this depends on how Nirmal wants to connect to the local X server.. He either could set the $DISPLAY on the remote machine to local.hosts.ip.address:0.0 which should (companied by a xhost +) do the trick in most cases, or, because the former doesn't make /much/ sense when useing ssh, he could enable X11 forwarding through the ssh connection, which is neat, 'cause encrypted..

daniel, just to show up the 2nd possibility (Which also works without root access to the remote machine, if X11forwarding is disabled in sshd_config.)

PS: Sorry Rogério, for sending this "twice" to you, I'm just to stupid to respond to a List mail correctly the first time.. :o/
