try issuing the following

the try to display your x-window.

Since you're getting an error message "can't open x server", you almost certainly have x installed.

I kinda agree with Hassan2. But let's say that your ip address is 100.90.80.70. Then you would need:
export DISPLAY="100.90.80.70:0.0"

Xserver

in hpux 11.00 you can use x with CDE or VUE application.
in first verify if the software is installed
swlist -l product
in second time verify the run-level
who -r
in third verify the start of the X server
more /etc/rc.log
ls -l /sbin/rc3.d (by default)
in last verify the name service
nslookup <nameserver>
echo $DISPLAY
