Remote X11 Session


Ok I have found alot of info online about this and I still cannot get it to work, I have a linux machine at work that has X on it, I am using KDE on it, I want to be able to connect to it with my laptop from anyware using X forwarding (I think) but I cannot get it to work, I have 2 different ways I am trying.

The first way I tried was using putty to connect to the linux machine and then type in startx, that started the Xsession right on the linux machine and not on my laptop, I found a setting in putty for X11 forwarding and tryed it with the same results.

The second way I tried was to install Cygwin with a full install, and then I went into it and typed in:

--------------------------------------------------------------------

marcus@marvin ~
$ startx -display 209.250.223.12:0.0

Xlib: connection to "209.250.223.12:0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server
/usr/X11R6/bin/xterm Xt error: Can't open display: 209.250.223.12:0.0

waiting for X server to shut down


marcus@marvin ~

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Am I going about this all wrong or not? The way I am testing right now I am on the same lan as the linux machine, I don't have iptables or any firewall on the machine so that is not stopping me, I don't know what else to check.

As I side note I have changed the ip's in the text above for securitys sake.

I haven't used Cygwin in ages since I don't have
any windows-installations up&running... so I don't
know that the status of it's XClient development is.

As a rule of thumb, however, I tend to believe that
there is no way of getting X onto a winDOHs machine
without commercial products like Hummingbird or
X-Win32 ... as I said, though, I don't pay too much
attention to the MS world lately and Cyg might be
able to do the trick. Why not just install a decent
OS on the notebook, though?

Cheers,
Tink

P.S.: You made me curious :)
Did you check this out?

Maybe you'll have to install X for Cygwin before it works ;)

Oh if only I could, I have tried so many times to get it to run linux and it installs fine, but I can't get the network card or modem to work, if the network card would work in linux I would format the thing tonight. It is a compaq 1200z with a funky network card, it needs the tulip driver but I can't ever get it to work right.

Of course I don't know much or really anything about linux drivers, I just make sure to get hardware that is linux compliant, the laptop is from my pre linux days *shudder*

Hard to believe that a tulip-based card can't
be made to work with Linux, I had tulip-based
PCI and PCMCIA cards working just fine :)
ever since 2.4.5 ...

Some win-modems still have no support in linux,
however a whole bunch of the luent ones do
work...

Maybe if you tried a newer kernel for the distro?

Can you post some more info on that box? ;)
I couldn't find a spec sheet for it on the HP website.
(How old is that thing?)

Cheers,
Tink

Is is actually pretty new (for me at least) it is a 1000MHz AMD the network card shows up in Windows XP as a compaq 10_100 MiniPCI Ethernet NIC. I have tryed in google to find out what kind of network card it actually is, as alot of manufactures just take like a lucent and alter it for themseleves but I can't find out anything about this besides what is shown above.

I have not tried a newer kernel yet as I just finally figured out how to recompile the kernel. I was thinking of trying that.

The kernel that I have been using on the laptop to try was from the redhat 7.2 install.

Well, if you have a few spare seconds
boot it of some Linux-install-CD and do
a lspci for us, will yah? Then post the
lines that refer to the NIC and modem.

Cheers,
Tink

00:09.0 Ethernet controller: Conexant HCF 56k Modem (rev 08)
00:09.1 Comminication controller: Conexant HCF 56k Modem (rev 05)

Ouch ... :/

Doesn't look too good, I'm afraid, if that
really is what it is and not just a puckarooed
pci.ids file in RH ... I've done some googling,
and the only hit that mentions this thing as
a network card is someone on a newsgroup
asking (no response) how to make it work.

Did you consider a PCMCIA card? ;)

Cheers,
Tink

I would be happy to do that too, awhile ago I went and got a pcmcia network card that was linux compatable, and found that redhat 7.2 did not find my pcmcia bus. I don't know about 8.0, I am looking right now.

Like I said I would love to have linux running right on my laptop, I actually have a job that they encourage me to work with linux and my primary machine still has to be windows :-(

What I really need right now is I want to be able to program php from home on my dsl, I use kate and nfs to connect to the server from work and would like to do that from home but the only machines I have at home are my laptop and a sun microsystems 400mhz system running solaris 8.0 and I don't have a clue how to use it and don't have time really to learn so I am trying to sell that machine.

So if you know anyone that would like to by a sun machine give me a yell :-)

I do, and I use vi all day long, and am at the command line all day long, but when I am working on php junk I am much faster in kate.

I have spent many hours programming in vi, but it gets old after awhile, I am just going to have to break down and get a new machine for at home that will run linux.

As a side note I just compiled kernel 2.4.20 for my laptop and tryed it, and right after it loaded the tulip driver I got a bunch of kernel panics and that was all she wrote. (I have been duel booting winXP and Redhat 8.0 I just don't use redhat since I don't have network access from it)

Ahhh Linux a love of mine but also my worst enemy at some times :-)
