Also, if you are doing it this way instead of using ssh, you must tell
local X server on the blade that X client connections from the remote
server are ok.

blade$ xhost +server
blade$ telnet server
server$ DISPLAY=blade:0.0
server$ export DISPLAY
server$ admin-tool &

Ssh is a more secure way of doing this, since you don't have to open up
the blade's X server for connections.
