Ok, try this:
ssh -x sun_host
On sun host:
make a note of the value.
sudo su - oracle
export DISPLAY=value_you_previously_noted
Does that work?

Thanks for the emails


I was running the 'xhost +' before, just forgot to mention it.


This time I did use the ssh -X command from the xterm to go to the sun
server.  Before I was using a separate ssh client to log into the Sun
server.  After logging in I noticed a message that said an entry was
added into the /home/<username>/.Xauthority file.  I ran xclock again
and then it came up on my laptop without any errors, I did not have to
set my DISPLAY variable.    


I then did a sudo into the oracle user on sun to kick off the installer.
The installer made me set DISPLAY.  After starting the installer it
eventually through the error: Can't connect to X11 window server 'my IP
address:0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.  I could see the
following with netstat -a


<sun server>.55671         <my PC>.6000     0      0 24820      0


Thanks for the help so far
