1. X11 Forwarding must be enabled in the server's sshd_config(5) file. See the man page regarding the default, which is "no".

2. After X11 Forwarding is enabled, when you use ssh -X or -Y, the DISPLAY environment variable will be set for you. Do not set the value yourself.
Code:
$ ssh jggimi

$ echo $DISPLAY
DISPLAY: Undefined variable.
$ exit
.

$ ssh -X jggimi
