This should work from any location that would work with
a thin client.  Perhaps you are hitting the 'outside'
interface that has iptables firewalling.  The ssh -X
variation should have worked if you were able to log
in, though.

If you have good bandwidth, Cygwin is better.  If you
are working remotely over a slow link, VNC is better.
VNC periodically scans the screen buffer, sending changes
so during fast updates it can skip some and catch up
with the final results.  Using X directly, you have
to transmit every change as it happens.
