use "xhost" to tell your local machine who to accept connections from. ssh or telnet to the remote machine. run the app. that's normally all there is to it.

$ ssh -X username@box (use ip addr if necessary)
$ xterm & (brings up whatever application you want on the client machine from the server. In this case. xterm)
