Yes you can run remotely, but you must have a local X running, and you must be able to tunnel the X protocol (using ssh or a VPN, for example) to remain secure.

talk to the ethereal people,

they should tell you how to run it properly,

until then you might use

xhost +

run as the user who is running X. This should allow the root user to connect to X that is running as a user.
