Problem exporting X.

I am trying to access my RH9 linux box from WinXP machine using puTTY and VNC Viewer. I logged in using SSH and did the export DISPLAY=<ip of WinXP machine> then startkde but when I execute startkde I am getting whole bunch of errors

xsetroot: unable to open display ''
xrdb: Connection refused
xrdb: Can't open display ''
xset: unable to open display ""
xset: unable to open display ""
xset: unable to open display ""
startkde: Starting up...
ksplash: cannot connect to X server
kded: cannot connect to X server
DCOP aborting call from 'anonymous-4033' to 'kded'
kdeinit: Can't connect to the X Server.
kdeinit: Might not terminate at end of session.
kcminit: cannot connect to X server
knotify: cannot connect to X server
DCOP aborting call from 'anonymous-4037' to 'knotify'
ksmserver: cannot connect to X server
startkde: Shutting down...
KLauncher: Exiting on signal 1
startkde: Running shutdown scripts...
startkde: Done.

This is the first time I am attempting something like that so I really have no idea what Iím doing wrong.
