Display on ssh [SOLVED]

Forums: 

Hi,
Environment:
Shell - csh
distro - rhel 4.5
Applications like adobe, open office which are on Server, are added in client machine's .cshrc file
When ssh'ed from machine "A" to "B" as a normal user, i am able to open the documents related to pdf but not able to open office org documents (excel, doc's etc)
I have couple of questions:
a) Is Open office org not supported or am I missing a trick?
b) My ssh syntax is ssh -X @. Is it a good practice to use -X? They say it opens up security, so any hacker can keylog...
Kindly elaborate...

Thanks,
Kiran
