You have different devices available like postscript, jpeg and png. If 
you are not able to get access to a remote X connection, you will not be 
able to use the X11 device.

If you just have problems, I suggest approaching your local sysadmin 
with the problem. Just tell him/her that you want access to X - this has 
basically nothing to do with bioconductor. Provided you are using *NIX 
at both ends, and using ssh to login, you can just do a 
# ssh -X username at server
This requires that the X server on the server allows X forwarding.

I cannot really help without knowing more details about the server OS 
and the method you are using to get access to the server.
