What do you mean "not running properly"? What are the symptoms?

Thanks for your reply

Actually, we have a CAD application calibre.When I launched that application from Workstation It is not running. That application has to open another window and it will run.But it is not happening when launched from workstation. But when I connect to the same machine through VNC session I am able to run that application properly.

Any how I found the solution for that. I have edited /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf file. We have to set the oprtion DisallowTCP=false.

It resolved my issue.
