probably cos you're trying to run it as root. you need to allow root to access your x server first. run "xhost +localhost" as your normal user.

oh.. well let's start by defining "remote" then... what are ALL the machines involved in this running? how are they connected?

There are 30 machines in this network and one NIS server is also running in the network, all machines are configured as NIS Client. I tried(from fedora core 3) to connect remote machine as both nis user and root, But the error was same. Another thing is that the connection was succesful when i tried it from RedHat 9. I used "ssh" to connect to remote machine.

thanks

Did you enable X forwarding? With something like "ssh -Y user@host" (-X for older versions).
