Xterm Error Not Able To Display


i m using cygwin to run the GUI applications installed under linux redhat 8

The error is.
" Error: Can't open display: 127.0.0.1:0 "
the environment variable display is set so " DISPLAY=127.0.0.1:0 "

127.0.0.1 always points to local computer. That means in points to the linux machine when used on linux and it points to the windows machine when used in windows.
What you need to do is to set the DISPLAY variable to IP address of the windows machine (the one with cygwin-X).
Then the gui application will show up on the windows desktop.
