Cant Access Applicatoin GUI Remotely (SSH)


Theres an application in my RHEL 6 server that has a GUI (which we'd like to use). When I run the is says it needs Server X11.

I know its gotta do something with X server (and I installed it).I found some tutorial for auto configuration and then I was supposed to access the server with "ssh -X myid@serverip" but it does nothing.(did this from putty)

What can I do to access this application's GUI remotely from a Windows Machine?

Thanks in advance!

EMBOSS::GUI::Conf(3pm)					User Contributed Perl Documentation				    EMBOSS::GUI::Conf(3pm)

EMBOSS::GUI::Conf - repository for EMBOSS::GUI site-specific configuration AUTHOR
Luke McCarthy <> SYNOPSIS
use EMBOSS::GUI::Conf; $conf = EMBOSS::GUI::Conf->new(); foreach $app ($conf->apps) { ($name, $doc) = @$app; if (!$conf->is_excluded($name)) { ... } } foreach $group ($conf->groups) { $group_name = shift @$group; if (!conf->is_excluded($group_name) { foreach $app (@$group) { ($name, $doc) = @$app; ... } } } DESCRIPTION
EMBOSS::GUI::Conf contains site-specific configuration information for EMBOSS::GUI. Consult the source for a description of the variables that can be set. Public methods are described below: new() Returns a new EMBOSS::GUI::Conf object. This method stores the EMBOSS::GUI::Conf package variables in the object hash, ensures that the specified output path is writeable and adds the EMBOSS binaries to the path. apps() Returns a list of available EMBOSS applications. Each element of the list is a reference to an array containing the name and description of an application. groups() Returns a list of application groups. Each element of the list is a reference to an array containing the name of the group and a list of applications belonging to that group (each application is in turn a reference to an array as described in apps() above.) Note that an individual application can appear in multiple groups. is_excluded($subject) Returns true if the subject is being excluded from public display, false otherwise. $subject is the name of an application or application group as it appears in the output from wossname. databases() Returns a list of available databases. Each element of the list is the name of a database, suitable for use in a USA. matrices() Returns a list of available alignment scoring matrices. Each element of the list is a reference to an array containing the filename of the scoring matrix, suitable for use as the value of a matrix or matrixf argument, and a description of the matrix. codon_usage_tables() Returns a list of available codon usage tables. Each element of the list is a reference to an array containing the filename of the codon usage table, suitable for use as the value of a codon argument, and the name of the species from which it is derived.
