ssl issues


I have used ssl to login to remote computers before without much problems and can still do it now, but when I try to connect to my fedora core1 box from my laptop (running damn small linux), and run x applications, I get errors!


eg

login to computer works ok
can view and change directorys no problem.
If I try to run something like nautilus
I get the error
_X11TransSocketINETConnect: Can't get address for localhost

(nautilus:13748): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:


This happens if I try to open other X programs aswell like xmms

I used to have no problem running these apps.

Any Ideas??

Danny

you mean ssh? if you shell to a linux box, and try to run x, it won't work like that.

--there is no x server running for the programs to run on.

you need an x server running on your windows box, and you can shell to your linux box,
and start X on your windows display, and then you can run X programs on windows
from a remote linux box.

This is a little vague, and i am sorry, but there are a few ways of accomplishing this
based on convenience/cost.

Try cygwin, see if that doesn't help.

Think the option you want is:
ssh -X
to fwd X Windows

sorry
I meant ssh

the linux box I am trying to reach has a working Xserver up and running fine.
I used to be able to access this box no problem and run apps but for some reason it has just stopped working ??

ssh -X (with all the other bits -l user address) didn't seem to make a difference either??

Thanks for the replys anyway

Try adding line
127.0.0.1 localhost
to file /etc/hosts (if it is not there).
