I'd like to ask you: did you add the Linux client to the authorized clients with
xhost like xhost +Linux_BOX_IP( xhost + is a probable reason
for Solaris to barf out as the mentioned host is not authorized to use its X
server. Additional checks should be made about tcpwrappers settings -
ALLOW,DENY;firewall settings, etc.
And final consideration: tunneling the X session between the two hosts with SSH
or IPSEC ;-)
