Is your sshd server running with " X11Forwarding yes " 
Yes... I uncommented X11Forwarding and set it to YES...

# Kerberos TGT Passing only works with the AFS kaserver
#KerberosTgtPassing no

X11Forwarding yes
#X11DisplayOffset 10
#X11UseLocalhost yes
#PrintMotd yes


I also uncommented ForwardX11 and set it to yes...
# Site-wide defaults for various options

# Host *
#   ForwardAgent no
   ForwardX11 yes
#   RhostsAuthentication no
#   RhostsRSAAuthentication no
#   RSAAuthentication yes
#   PasswordAuthentication yes
and are you running
nix from home or using a win32 client such as putty/securecrt to connect
to the work unix machine?

I connecting from an wind32 client (putty)... and yes I enabled X
forwarding on the connection...
