well.. whatever you want:

     -X      Enables X11 forwarding.  This can also be specified on a 
             basis in a configuration file.

             X11 forwarding should be enabled with caution.  Users with the
             ability to bypass file permissions on the remote host (for the
             user's X authorization database) can access the local X11 
             through the forwarded connection.  An attacker may then be able
             to perform activities such as keystroke monitoring.

             For this reason, X11 forwarding is subjected to X11 SECURITY
             extension restrictions by default.  Please refer to the ssh -Y
             option and the ForwardX11Trusted directive in ssh_config(5) for
             more information.

     -Y      Enables trusted X11 forwarding.  Trusted X11 forwardings 
are not
             subjected to the X11 SECURITY extension controls.
