Can't open GUI of programs in remote machines by telnet and setting DISPLAY.....


Hello all,
I'm trying to connect to my sun server (192.168.2.57) from my linux machine (Fedora core 1 - 192.168.2.95) to run a program in GUI mode. but i can't open the program in graphical mode. I was able to do this with redhat 9 which i was previously using. however some of the redhat 9 machines also have the same problem. i can get the program run from another redhat 9 machine.

what can i do to get it working on my system? the sunserver had c shell (.cshrc). does that make any difference? i searched net a lot. but i cudn't find the solution.

these are the commands i have given and the out put...

Code:
%xhost +
access control disabled, clients can connect from any host

%telnet 192.168.2.57
Trying 192.168.2.57...
Connected to 192.168.2.57.
Escape character is '^]'.

SunOS 5.8

%setenv DISPLAY 192.168.2.95:0.0
% seqlab

SeqLab cannot open your display.
Please do a setenv DISPLAY ... and try again.
Make sure your display authorizes connections from your host.
Consult your system manager for help.

when connecting to another machine (SGI machine with IRIX)....

Code:
$ xhost +
access control disabled, clients can connect from any host
$ telnet 192.168.2.104
Trying 192.168.2.104...
Connected to 192.168.2.104.
