I set up FreeNX on one of my Linux boxes today running CentOS 5.3. I am using NX Client for Windows to connect to this machine. For the most part, everything seems to be running nicely and surprisingly fast.
However, when I connect to the FreeNX server, then ssh to another server, I cannot export my DISPLAY back to the FreeNX server. Is there a way to get this to work? I have confirmed that if I'm physically at the box, I can ssh and export my DISPLAY back without an issue, it only seems to be when I'm connected to FreeNX.
Example of what I've tried:
[on FreeNX server]
(The title bar describes this session as chryzmo@servername:1000)
$ xhost +
access control disabled, clients can connect from any host
$ echo $DISPLAY
$ export DISPLAY=10.0.0.88:1000.0
(There is a 5-10 second pause here)
xterm Xt error: Can't open display: 10.0.0.88:1000.0
Does anyone know if there is a way to export your DISPLAY back to a FreeNX server?
