X11 remote access


Hi every one. I like to use an old laptop (pentium 200) to display programs run on my modern desktop (Athlon +2000) using X11. I get an error message that the dispaly on laptop can't be opened. I've tried the following:

On the laptop:
$: xhost +srvr1
or
$: xhost +srvr1:0


For the server side I've issued the command
$: ssh -X srver1 application_name
with the same error message.

I've also tried loging in srvr1 with
$: ssh srvr1
then
$: export DISPLAY =laptop:0.0
and then
$: application_name

but no results. I've read the man pages for X, Xsecurity, xauth, xhost, xinit, and
Xserver, but I am at a loss. Any ideas?

Running on both machines Slackware 9.1.
X11 is running on both machines.
srvr1 and laptop are defined on /etc/hosts

Thanks for the pointer. I'll give a try to tightvmc; though it is intended to
access the full desktop. I still want to limit access to applications, so I'll
continue the search.
