    This disables X fordwarding not enables it.

    You need

    M> ssh -Y C

    This enables trusted X11 forwarding.

    Using -X enables untrusted forwarding and things like copy and paste won't
    work.

    You do not need xhost+ and you do not need to se the display environment
    variable and you do not need to explictly forward the X ports.

    On C you should get something like

    C> echo $DISPLAY
    localhost:18.0

    If you then do

    C> xterm &

    It should display on the X server running on M.
