Subject: update: X11 forwarding for SSH

HI all,

Jut to update my problem with X11 forwarding in SSH.
It seems to be a configuration parameter in sshd_config.

When i tested it with secureCRT & enabling X11 fowarding it works & sets the
DISPLAY aapropriately.
But when i try to do ssh from one solaris 8 client to other solaris 8 ssh
server it fails to set.
I have made client side configuration for X11forward to yes.
There is one more parameter LocalForward which specifies the port to be used
but how do i decide which port to use?

I have to get it working for solaris ssh client to solaris ssh server.
Binaries are openssh3.7.1p2 from sunfreeware.

Pls let me know more.
TIA, will summarize
