Do I need an xserver running on my windows box?  That may be my problem.  If
so, could someone suggest one.  I did a quick search and I found several
that you have to pay for.

What errors are you getting when try to launch an X application? Are you
running an X server on your windows machine?

Have you restarted sshd since changing sshd_config?
