It can be done - in fact that's how this mail is being written.  Can you
post the values of X11DisplayOffset and X11Forwarding (also
X11UseLocalhost, XAuthLocation if they are set) in /etc/ssh/sshd_config
on the headless machine and ForwardX11 (and ForwardX11Trusted if set)
in /etc/ssh/ssh_config on the client.  Then check that the display
string set on the client machine works, ssh to the headless machine and
echo $DISPLAY.
