DISPLAY is required if you want to run something like xwindows

On the remote machine, set your DISPLAY environment variable so that the application will display graphics to your Xterminal and run the application.

setenv DISPLAY adress:0.0
or
export DISPLAY adress:0.0

You'll need an X-Windows emulator on your Windows box in order to do that. Here is a list of vendors.

Why cant you....

Just download and install the full oracle client onto the windows machine, oem comes with it.

Configure tnsnames etc

Forget about display and xterm ???
