I tried that. Although the display number is not local, I am still unable
to see xclock. Please see the picture at https://pasteboard.co/IeQFUre.png

As you can see, the error message is something new.
srun: error: Unable to allocate resources: X11 forwarding not available

But I guess I am making some progress...
