HELP for Newbie: Unable to run GUI installer (Ubuntu client connected to SLES server)

Hello All,

I'm using my Ubuntu 10.04 client connected via SSH to a SuSE Linux server (SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64) version 11 patchlevel=1).

I'm trying to run an install of WebSphere Portal but can't seem to be able to run the GUI installer.

Running xclock as root returns this error:

Error: Can't open display:

Running xhost returns this:

xhost: unable to open display ""

As far as my very limited knowledge of Linux goes, I don't have to export display while connecting from an Ubuntu client (never had to do that connecting to AIX and some others). So I think it's something on the server side that needs to be configured or run... Your help would be very appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
