X display on another system


Can somebody tell me what I need to do in order to get the "--display=" parameter of GNOME applications to work? I think it's also possible to "set DISPLAY=192.168.0.3:0.0"... No?

When I try to do this (from system 192.168.0.2), I get the following message:

(gedit:11676): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: 192.168.0.3:0.0

On the target machine (192.168.0.3), I have tried "$ xhost +192.168.0.2"... No luck. Is there somewhere else I need to enable security? (Also, I cannot locate a log file to give me a clue.)

Many thanks in advance...

You have to export the terminal to the target:
export DISPLAY=192.168.0.3:0.0
Then you type commands.

If you want another way, read this:
