[ale] X apps on remote unix through ISP

I have a unix account at school (SPSU) that I can telnet to once I make
a ppp connection with my ISP. I would like to run X applications on that
remote machine when I'm in the X environment on my local Linux box. I
have set the DISPLAY environment variable on the remote machine to
xxx.x.xx.xxx:0 using the dynamic IP address provided at connection time
and still the remote host cannot open the display. Is there something I
can do or set on my Linux machine to allow the remote machine to connect
to my local X display? I don't know wether the problem is geting into my
machine or through my ISP. Please help.
