Got X to work through ssh

Probably already known... But w/ever.
(ON THE computer you are connecting to.)
1. cd  into /etc/ssh
2. Then edit: nano sshd_config
3. Add at the bottom:  X11Forwarding yes
4. reboot

then use this command to connect:
ssh -l username -X -v ipaddress 

Then start:
xcalc to test.
