Remote Access

When I remote login from my Linux Box to get a hold of my Solaris Box, I am unable to export xclock from Solaris to my Linux Desktop. I can run xclock directly from the Solaris box. I am able to export test with no problems.

I ssh into Solaris:
# ssh -X userid@ipaddress
# xclock

I get the message, ksh: xclock: not found
(although I can access it directly out of Solaris)

I am running RedHat Enterprise 4 and Solaris 9

P.S. I am able to export from my FreeBSD to my Linux Box just fine

You should check you PATH environment variable when logged in you Solaris box and see if the path to xclock is there.

This is just an idea but this does not looks like an X export problem since the command is not found at all.

Yes, check that the ksh has the right path. Try "whereis xclock" and "which xclock" to find out where the program is located. You can also start the program by giving it's full path, e.g. /usr/bin/xclock. That way ksh will find it no matter what.
