Re: xhost RHEL3 != RHEL4

I'm already using X11Forward in ssh.
I tested using rlogin but also need to set the xhost.

I find no need to use xhost in RHEL4. But I did find I needed to allow X in the ssh command.

ssh -X -l username hostname

That will allow ssh to forward the X session to your client.
