X11 forwarding for macOS High Sierra

Root works well on the macOS computer. But if I run the root of macos by ‘ssh -Y’ commands in xshell or Linux, the GUI displays on mac, not the windows or Linux. It means that I can’t make my macos computer be a root-server.

I Install the xQuartz, and it’s ok to run the root locally. It’s easy to understand I can’t run other GUI apps like EXCEL or PS by ‘ssh -Y’,for that they maybe use Cocoa or other’s tech. But ROOT’s GUI is designed for X11.

How can I solve this problem?

ROOT Version: 6.14
Platform: macOS High Sierra
Compiler: cling

On your mac server you should be sure to run the X11 version of ROOT
