You can always try
Code:
ssh -X computername
This should enable X11 forwarding. You can also set X11 forwarding to default by editing /etc/sshd/sshd_config; look through for a line about X11 forwarding and uncomment it if necessary and change it to yes. Then restart the ssh server. This is the server you want to connect to by the way.
