xterm -display remote:0.0 Can't open display - xterm from tru64 to debian 3.1
I am trying to initiate a remote xterm from a Tru64 Digital Unix 5.0 machine to a HP thin client running debian 3.1 and are getting 'Can't Open display'.
I have rsh and rlogin setup and logging in without passwords with the same user and password on both machines (Had to add hosts to /etc/hosts.equiv to allow this).
I have a hostname for the thin client on the digital unix box called 'HPTC' which pings and is correct.
I have added the Tru64 box in xhost on the HP client by xhost +tru64 and have also tried opening full access to the xserver with xhost +
If I try this command from the digital unix box;
xterm -display HPTC:0.0
Error: Can't open display:0.0
Unfortunately I get no messages appearing in /var/log/messages to give me any indication of what is wrong. I also can't find any useful log messages on the Tru64 machine in /var/adm
Can anyone suggest why my xterm is getting refused or other means of troubleshooting further?
It depends how your X server is set up, esp. the selected authentication. Most of times this will be MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1, so the contents of the xauth man page might help you.
I have tried extracting and merging the magic cookie of the Thin client's xserver into the xauth of the unix machine exporting the display. The error message still doesn't change.
I don't think its an authentication problem from what I have read since I'm still getting 'Cant open display'. If it were an authentication problem I would expect to get errors along the lines of
Xlib: connection to "glenlivet.mfcf.uwaterloo.ca:0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server
X11 Toolkit Error : Can't open display: glenlivet.mfcf.uwaterloo.ca:0.0
I got this info from http://www.math.uwaterloo.ca/mfcf/fa...rm_display.faq
Im still battling on; any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
