ssh X11 forwarding is the preferred method for running Solaris 8 X11 applications, including 3-D and graphics intensive applications, within a solaris8 zone. 3-D applications can only be run on a system that supports 3-D graphics in the global zone.
To use X11 forwarding, you must meet the following requirements:
Networking must be enabled for the solaris8 zone
Because Solaris 8 does not include the ssh login by default, ssh must be downloaded and installed in the zone.
# ssh -X zone_host_name
Any application that delivers its own Xserver extensions will not work with ssh -X forwarding and is not currently supported within solaris8 branded zones.
