Enabling GUI mode in Secure CRT
I am new to using the Secure CRT..I tried installing oracle from my client pc. I knew I require a XTERM , I used to use XTERM or Hummingbird to install applications that run on HP-UX , IBM-AIX, etc.. I am trying to install oracle in Linux from client pc with secure CRT..
can any one help me to configure X11 window in secure CRT to proceed further..
Its been a long time since I used S-CRT, but unless something has changed, there is no X server in S-CRT. That is what your Hummingbird Excede provides you with. Having said that, I don't know why you would need an xterm instead of the terminal emulation provided by Secure CRT. If you do actually need an X server for Windows, a good summary of the available options is available at http://www.rahul.net/kenton/xsites.html.
Thanks for your reply...Please let me`know what should i have to do a successful oracle installation on the server.. Having xhost + on the console will do my installation...I have the DISPLAY set to my local pc..please share your views and also let me know if I am missing something..

Can't connect to X11 window server using '192.168.200.24:0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.
OUI-10025:Unable to start an interactive install session because of the following error:Can't connect to X11 window server using '192.168.200.24:0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable. The DISPLAY envir onment variable should be set to <hostname or IP address>:<screen>, where the <screen> is usually '0.0 '.
OUI-10026:Depending on the Unix Shell, you can use one of the following commands as examples to set th e DISPLAY environment variable:
- For csh: % setenv DISPLAY 192.168.6.54:0.0

- Make sure that client users are authorized to connect to the X Server.
OUI-10027:To enable client users to access the X Server, open an xterm, dtterm or xconsole as the user that started the session and type the following command:
% xhost +
To test that the DISPLAY environment variable is set correctly, run a X11 based program that comes wit h the native operating system such as 'xclock':
% <full path to xclock... see below>
If you are not able to run xclock successfully, please refer to your PC-X Server or OS vendor for furt her assistance.
Typical path for 'xclock': '/usr/X11R6/bin/xclock'

Yup, you need an X server. So install one from the list I pointed you to in my previous reply. If you run Secure CRT to log into the Oracle host, simply turn on X-tunneling in S-CRT, and your $DISPLAY variable will automatically be properly set. Simply pointing $DISPLAY at your local PC will do nothing unless that PC is running an X server.
Maybe simpler, run a Linux live CD to login to the Oracle host. Use 'ssh -X' (does the same as S-CRT from Windows) to log into the Oracle host and run the installation. Once the Oracle server is installed, you probably won't need X any more.
I have both putty and S-CRT ..I could not see the tunnel in S-CRT..If you guide me with steps to set up the putty/S-CRT it will be of great help..I am a DBA and have oracle user credentials, should I have root user to login and enable permissions to have xclock working. I tried ssh -X oracle@hostname and ran runInstaller but still I get the same error..
The company policy doesnot allow me to use X-server..so I request you to provide me the steps in configuring the S-CRT or PUTTY..Should I run Xhost + in the console to enable clients access..
Thank you for the support and looking forward to hear from you in this regard..
Can you please update.. I have to complete the task for 10 servers.All the servers are unique in configuration.
The information you posted 'Can't connect to X11 window server' says you need an X server. Neither CRT nor Putty provide this. If your company disallows the use of X servers, then you will be unable to install Oracle. The use of X tunneling in itself does not provide any X-windows functionality; it is merely a convenient and secure channel between the X client(s) and X server.
I'm sorry, but I do not remember the details of where to enable X tunneling in CRT. It is a long time since I last used it, and I don't even have a Windows host at my disposal to try it out on. It is a checkbox, probably somewhere in the dialog that you use to configure individual client addresses and related information.
Why don't you use a Linux live CD, as I suggested earlier? It has all of what you need, and technically, you won't be installing X...
Thanks for the support. I used Xming and completed the installation. You are doing a wonderful Job out there..
