set DISPLAY variable problem
I installed VMWare on Windows 2000 and then set up the VM for Linux RH8.0. I start up linux and it works perfectly fine. I set up my DNS and Proxy settings etc., I have configured my Ethernet card to be Bridged to my network. Hence I should get all flexibilities as what I can get on my windows machine.
My windows machine has the IP like 192.168.26.224 and when I get into my linux box through VMware I get the IP 192.168.26.198
I'm able to ping my VM from windows and ping my windows machine from my VM. Now when I try an rlogin into any of the Unix networks, it gets in fine, but doesnt set the DISPLAY variable.
I set the display using the command
setenv DISPLAY 192.168.26.198:0.0 and then when I run the xhost it tells me, "Can't open display ".....""
What am I doing wrong - please someone who has expertise on VMware and Linux help me out here. Its frustating as none of the X applications can work.
