Remote ssh -Y display: cannot create graphics configuration

I wonder if anyone has seen this problem? I checked the archives
and did not see anything that helped.

IDV runs fine on my Linux box (Fedora core 3) with a low end video card
(ASUS Radeon 9200 SE 128MB AGP8X).

I can also "ssh -Y" from my Linux box back to itself, and IDV runs fine.
Note, if I use "ssh -X", IDV complains about GLX extensions not being
available, but "ssh -Y" works okay.

Now, on a remote SunOS SPARC server (headless, but with OpenGL installed),
I have installed the Solaris SPARC IDV.

When I "ssh -Y" from my Linux box to that remote box, and then run runIDV,
I get a popup error saying that it cannot create a graphics configuration.
Here is what it prints out:

> ./runIDV -debug -trace

Java 3D WARNING : reported GLX version = 1.2
    GLX version 1.3 or higher is required
    The reported version number may be incorrect.  There is a known
    ATI driver bug in glXQueryVersion that incorrectly reports the GLX
    version as 1.2 when it really is 1.3, so Java 3D will attempt to
    run anyway.

Note, I see that same GLX warning when I run locally.

I opened my firewall up completely and still see the same problem.

I am not sure where to look next. Any pointers would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
