Here is my current setup...I'm on a winxp box right now with xming installed on it and putty installed...
Putty is configured for x11 forwarding on the particular server that I am connecting to
the server itself has a sshd_config file that looks like this:
# Accept locale-related environment variables
AcceptEnv LANG LC_CTYPE LC_NUMERIC LC_TIME LC_COLLATE LC_MONETARY LC_MESSAGES
AcceptEnv LC_PAPER LC_NAME LC_ADDRESS LC_TELEPHONE LC_MEASUREMENT
AcceptEnv LC_IDENTIFICATION LC_ALL
...and a display variable that looks like this:
[root@blah]# echo $DISPLAY
but when I try to run anything it keeps saying display not found (or in the case of firefox no error at all)
