You *should* be following the advice given *elsewhere* in this thread to connect to the server as 'root' and run 'xhost +' to allow connections to the server:
$ su -
# xhost +
Your DISPLAY variable is correctly set, as indicated in the error message you posted. The problem is the X-server is refusing the connection, and executing 'xhost +' as root should correct that.
