That's not the reason. You don't run X on the server for such
purposes. You already run it on your own PC. In such cases the server
runs on your PC, the client is the app you are running. I know it
sounds backward but that's the case.
Are you sure you have enough bandwidth? Try running something simple
like xterm. Also X11 forwarding might have been turned off in
