Error : Clearprojexp: Can't Open Display


Does anyone know the annswer to this;

I'm trying to execute a remote program clearprojexp from another server.

from the linux client telnet session I type;
clearprojexp
then recieve the follow message;
Error : Clearprojexp: Can't Open Display

I've tried setenv DISPLAY clientIP:0.0 with no luck.

What are the best ways to troubleshoot the issue???

The server is REDHAT and the Client. I think it might be related to a x11 config, but need to know more steps to TS.

Thank you.

Hi,

You use setenv (which is c shell specific, if I'm not mistaken), could it be that you are not actually using a c-shell but a bash/sh/ksh shell? If this is the case export DISPLAY clientIP:0.0

Also: Does your client pc accept this connection (xhost to find out and xhost +ipnumber to set). See man xhost for details.

Hope this helps.
