Starting remote Xsession

Hello everyone,
I'm setting up router for next year and everythings running fine, except when I try to use X :1 -query "server" to logon to a X-server. I'm using IP masqurading with the subnet. Bascially it sends out a udp packet to the server through the firewall but for some reason the packet never gets back to my box, whether the firewall drops the return packet or the server never sends a reply, I don't know. My firewall's pretty restrictive, so does anyone know a way to let the ports used for this stuff get through and to the right port? I'm using iptables.

Thanks in advance,
