For troubleshooting purposes try setting the display on the
ssh server to point to the remote client.
remote is the FQDN or IP of the remote system.
           C-SHELL   server% setenv DISPLAY remoteClient:0
           BOURNE   server$ export DISPLAY=remoteClient:0
Then test by starting an X-Client on the server.

Note that using setenv to set the display neglects ssh security.
