Thanks Eric, I'll have a look through this. This looks like it may be above my paygrade.

In the mean time, today I discovered using the -X flag when ssh'ing into the headless box where I want the iqfeed client running. Low and behold I can have the GUI part of iqfeed display on my local machine, but have it running on the server. That will do the trick for my needs for the time being.

Awesome. It never crossed my mind to use -X to bring the Xserver over to the local machine.

The walkthrough I linked to seems daunting but is actually quite straightforward after. Worth a shot if you find yourself with some free time.
