Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0.0'

I´m trying to install sap system on Linux platform. I declare the environment variable DISPLAY to my localhost. But I get this message error:

Java.lang.RuntimeException: invocation target exception: Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.



at SDTGui.main(

If I want to make the remote installation from a windows Pc, what are the commands that I have to executed and which order??

I only execute ./sapinst and get the next paragraph

andromed:/media/cdrom/IM_SLM7.0/IM_LINUX_I386 # ./sapinst

extracting... done!

Starting GuiServer using:

/usr/lib/java/jre/bin/java -Xmx256M -cp ++/tmp/sapinst_exe.28816.1252900808/JAR/instgui.jar:/tmp/sapinst_exe.28816.1252900808/JAR/inqmyxml.jar SDTServer config=jar:sdtserver.xml guiport=21212 sapinsthost=localhost sapinstport=21200 guistart=true
