[CentOS] Centos 4.1 DISPLAY question

I have X running on 4.1. From another PC I use ssh to remote in.

from the command line I enter "export DISPLAY=machine:0.0; mozilla"
and nothing comes up on the X window screen. mozilla just returns.

I then tried in a terminal on X windows issue the command "xhost + "
and redid the "export DISPLAY=machine:0.0; mozilla" on the command line
with nothing showing on the X window screen again.

If I remote into machine and enter the command "mozilla" it will display
on my workstation no problem.

Why cant I get it to display on the machine:0.0 display?

THanks for any help.

Jerry
