To add to William's post:
You can have local configurations per host:
$ qconf -aconf node01
and make some changes there, i.e. override the global settings. AFAIK the mail program is in a different location on Solaris than on Linux. Means: I usually suggest to get rid of the local configurations if you have an uniform cluster. But some cluster installers create them by default (like the installation by hand of SGE, or I think ROCKS).

This is what is available right now.

You could use -builtin- for normal parallel jobs, avoiding any SSH overhead. But you can have a special queue where you use SSH by intention with X11 forwarding.

The submit host's sshd shouldn't be used I think. I mean, this is the machine where you issue "ssh" by hand or by SGE to connect to any other "sshd" inside the cluster.

If I set this I can't use any X11 application at all. Was there anything else necessary?
