If you are using Putty from Windows then first you need to install XMing – an X-Server that starts on top of your desktop. Download Xming and install it. Download PuTTY (if using Windows) and save it on your hard disk.
Start XMing as default.
Start PuTTY. In the PuTTY Configuration section, on the left panel, select Connection → SSH → X11. On the right panel, click on the Enable X11 forwarding checkbox. Set the X display location as
:0.0. Enter the hostname or IP address in the Host Name textbox.
Now login as oracle user, run the installer. Please remember to run as oracle user and run the install file.
cd database ./runInstaller
You’ll have your X-application runs on your Windows via X11 forwarding configured.
