X applications from SUN box on my Linux workstation

Hi folks,

I connect via ssh to my SUN Box (Solaris 9). My workstation runs Red Hat Psyche, version 8.

To run X applications from SUN on my workstation I done a xhost + hostname and export the right DISPLAY. I use a very restrictive firewall (iptables) on my Linux Box and must they shutdown to be able to use X apps from SUN.

First question: what are the ports i have to enable on my workstation? please detailed... perhapts 6000 as destination port?

I heard I can tunnel X over SSH? the command line to connect I added "-X" but it doesnt work.

you see ssh is enabled:
iptables -A OUTPUT -o eth0 -p tcp -s $myhost --sport 1024:65535 --dport 22 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --sport 1024:65535 -d $myhost --dport 22 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT

please share your knowledge with me
