Did you check if X server is listening on TCP port 5900?

How are you connecting to the machine? Did you do an SSH -X <ip>?

After you did ssh -X, check for netstat output as mentioned before.

You should also have an X server on your machine. What machine are you connecting from? Windows or Linux?

Hi -

Netstat is on the remote machine to which you connect. This is also applicable on the local machine. You need X running on local machine and remote machine to listen on a port.

After you did "ssh -X", what was the DISPLAY environ holding?

I input that command, but it just output 'usage: ssh [~~]' maybe there's not exist -X command
