HELP!! Error in GXSTRT: Unable to connect to X server
I need your help fedora users...
I have an application that runs on a remote machine and I want the display window to pop up on local machine:
local machine: Fedora C1
remote machine: RedHat 9.0
Here's the setup: I login into Local machine (console)...I type: xhost + remote.machine from that same terminal, I then ssh into the remote machine. While on the remote machine I type: setenv DISPLAY local.machine.ipaddr:0.0 after typing return. To check: I type....
echo $DISPLAY (from the remote machine and the display variable is set to display on the local machine).
Now i try to start the application that is fully installed on the remote machine and I get the following error:
Error in GXSTRT: Unable to connect to X server
FYI: the local machine is in runlevel 5 initially and when i type:
ps -eaf |grep X on the remote machine I get the following:
root 2401 2400 15 Feb17 ? 1-09:45:09 /usr/X11R6/bin/X :0 -auth /var/gdm/:0.Xauth vt7

ps -eaf |grep X on the local machine get the following:
root 3337 3336 23 Feb24 ? 11:29:18 /usr/X11R6/bin/X :0 -audit 0 -auth /var/gdm/:0.Xauth -nolisten tcp vt7

root 7071 7021 0 14:35 pts/1 00:00:00 grep X
Could the -nolisten tcp (on the local machine) be stopping this xserver from starting?
The odd thing is, is that when I use a Redhat 9.0 Local Machine and keeping the remote machine the same...the x-application works fine!!!!!! so it seems that the X settings on Fedora C1 may need to be changed. Could someone help me with this???
