Hi Chris

The command you used looks good. There are, however, two possible 
problems that I can see.

1. Your username/userid on torch.cs.dal.ca is different from that on 
your laptop. If that is the case use user at torch.cs.dal.ca where user 
is your username on the remote system.

2. The sshd daemon on torch.cs.dal.ca does not have X11 Forwarding 
enabled. See man 5 sshd_config. Usually this means changing the 
parameter of the X11Forwarding entry to Yes from No. However, If 
UseLogin is set to Yes then X11Forwarding will be disbled.
