Remote Login to SUN

Okay I have been able to start XWin and ssh into the Sun and start up a
program and have the interface directed to my display. The next question is
how can I get it so that when I start X it connects to the Sun and brings
the entire desktop to my display. I have done this with the Linux server we
have when I run the bat file for that XWin starts up and display's the GDM
login. But when I try the same thing with the Sun it does not work I have to
use a local window manager with X and then bring up an xterm to log into it.
Thanks for any help.

We've managed to do this between two NT boxes running cygwin by editing the
ssh_config and sshd_config files in /etc with "ForwardX11 yes" and
"X11Forwarding yes"
