I was able to redirect Xwin sessions through SecureCRT -- the configuration is pretty straightforward (and might even be in the Help).

Using a X11 Server on a Windows box can be risky. Almost everyone has (by default) wide open access. I.e., they do not turn on Access Control so simple port 6000 connections and keyboard loggers can connect to your PC silently and harvest whatever they want!
There are also some tricks in setting up the X11 connection on the PC correctly when using the SSH X11 tunnel. I can send you a doc I had for users years ago.

TCPIP 5.6 - Eco 3
Xwindows client Xming 126.96.36.199
I've gotten the DecWindows terminal working with Xming at this point, now if I can get this setup using a secure connection.

On SecureCRT config you have the "Forward X11 packets" checked?
I can't recall if the SSHd config needed to turn on the X11 forwarding or if it was enabled by default? Anyone know? I am only familiar with TCPIP for OpenVMS v5.4 ECO 7.
With HP v5.4, I did find I had to use a custom Remote port setup for SecureCRT. I attached a word doc screen capture for the important part and a sample X11 server config. I really hope this is not still true with HP v5.6! I believe it was a work around to a problem in the initial v5.4.
When connected via a SSH session w/ X11 forwarding turned on, I see this:
$ show display
Device: WSA13: [super]
Note the server of "10". I believe you will need to configure XMImg to allow access from the localhost:6000 if you turn on Access Control (recommended!). See the screen capture.
I can provide some old notes for 5 years ago when I tackled this problem. But I worry they might not be relavant due to the new variables you are using.
