XTEST extension not installed on this X server: Success


I'm trying to run matlab remotely. I downloaded cygwin for that purpose. And i do the following routinte to get it started.

1. open cygwin and type in startx
2. in the xterm window i type in xhost +
3. next i do ssh -X username@ipaddress and log on to the remote computer
4. i type in matlab

Everything goes fine until this point and i do get the matlab popped up on my computer. But when i try to open the matlab editor then i am getting the following error

"XTEST extension not installed on this X server: Success "

I tried to gather information on XTEST, but in vain.

Please help me with this.
