from the man-page
The display number to use. If omitted, the next free display number
have you tried
most likely the next free display would be :1, which you are probably
not running, and would then give you that error.
I think my previous suspicion about tcp connections is wrong.
and, again, if you are going from unix-unix use ssh -X. if you are
trying to connect to a windows box, vnc works well.
