Opening the xterm session on Linux through remote putty


I have X Window running on one of RHEL Machine 192.168.2.2.
I have logined through putty from remote Windows Machine 192.168.2.5. Now What I need to open the xterm (if I run the command through putty it should open xterm in the linux Machine).
Any idea?

Why do you need to open xterm (a shell for GUI) if you are already logged into a shell with putty?
