Ahh -- I do this all the time! If only I had known it was "hint-worthy"! ;) One way to speed this up (if I can add to this hint) is to place an alias of commonly connected machines in your .tcshrc or aliases.mine file. For example, alias xa ssh -X machine.name.a -l username alias xb ssh -X machine.name.b -l username (I have separate aliases for connecting securely -- and quickly -- to these machines without X-windows.) For the above poster who was having trouble, this will not work from within Terminal.app. You must have XDarwin installed on your Mac, and connect via ssh from an xterm running under XDarwin. (Apologies if you already knew that -- wasn't clear from your post.)

Forgot the single quotes for the alias commands, e.g.: alias xa 'ssh -X machine.name.a -l username' Sorry!
