Export display from Linux to Mac

From here
  1. On client Mac startup X11.app and check preferences->Security->"Allow connections from network clients"
  2. Open an xterm from the X11.app menu
  3. ssh into host machine with the X flag (from the xterm)
    ssh y.y.y.y -X -luser
  4. Everything works (even with firewall on), no need to set DISPLAY etc.
