XView error: can't open connection to window server:
I'm a newbie to Linux, but have worked with Solaris for a long time. I'm running RH9. I am wanting to run programs from a Sun server and display the graphics on my RH9 as client.
From the RH9 box I have run:
xhost +<server name>
then connected onto the server using ssh
then set the environment variable:
setenv DISPLAY <client machine>:0.0
This works fine with Cygwin or a Solaris box, but I when I try to connect with the RH9 client I get:
<Server >[sparc] 2% /usr/openwin/bin/textedit fred &
<Server> [sparc] 3% XView error: Cannot open connection to window server: <Client>:0.0 (Server package)
(I have substituted <Server> and <client> for the actual machine names.
Any help would be gratefully received.
