I'm a little lost. I can startx locally on my linux (RH9) box with both root and users. However, when I ssh into the linux box from cygwin (on windowsXP) and try to startx, I get errors.
When an user, I get the following:
"PAM authentication failed, cannot start X server"
And, when I'm root I get something else: "client 4 rejected from local host".
What happens is that the Xserver starts locally on the linux machine instead of in cygwin on the XP machine.
My question is how do I get the Xsession to run via cygwin (on windowsXP)? Do I need to do something on the linux (RH9) box or with the cygwin (on windowsXP)?
I am only doing this because I hope that it is faster than running VNC. (I already have VNC running and it works, just okay though.)
Thanks for reading,
