Of-cource you can,

I have installed ns-2 in XP (with cygwin) and I can run it smoothly.

I also have installed both ns-2.29 and ns-2.28 in my Debian Workstation
and when I connect with ssh, (where no X servers are available), both of
them run smoothly.

No, you do not NEED an X server to run ns. However, you do need
it if you want to run NAM, xgraph, DDD and any other tool that might require

For the core ns - simulator, it is not a requirement.
