[mike@MS mike]$ gftp&
[1] 6273
[mike@MS mike]$ Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

well that's not related to the syntax as such. just means you're running gftp as someone other than the user who loaded X (you su-ed to root?). run "xhost +localhost" to allow any local user to run X applications
