Using Vtune Amplifier GUI with X Forwarding

Using Vtune Amplifier GUI with X Forwarding


I'm trying to use Vtune Amplifier GUI on a remote system with SSH X Forwarding. The GUI works fine except that it fails to find a valid license. 

The remote system should have a valid license as I was able to invoke Vtune Amplifier CUI on the machine. Any tips would be appreciated.

ssh -X user@host
INTEL_LICENSE_FILE=/path/to/license/dir  amplxe-gui &
