Remote applications

How do I runs Redhat 9 GUI applications that I have remotely installed from a FC3 workstation. I tried running qfaxreader, a multi-page color and monochrome TIFF and fax viewer for linux installed on a RH9 faxserver and got the error :
"qfaxreader: cannot connect to X server" ..

I could previously run it confortably before upgrading my workstation from RH9 to FC3.

Congratulations to the saner defaults in FC. What you want/need
to do is
xhost +<ip/name of server>
on the client.

When you ssh, do "ssh -Y ..." and it will enable X forwarding; and you don't need to change other stuff.
