X Window/Xterm from Fedpra
 
I am stumped here. I have 2 Fedora FC2 boxes, one a desktop, the other a laptop. From the Desktop I can issue "X -query mySol9_server -once", log in and then run Netscape etc.... From my laptop, I issue the same command, can logon but when I try to start a Java application I get errors --- Font "fdingbats-medium-r-normal" not found. I can run this application from the desktop, but not from the laptop.

I need it working on the laptop, since this is used to manage 3 headless Sol9 boxes at our D/R site.

Any direction would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Problem resolved....

I started looking into the differences and noticed that my Desktop Linux box had the name of the Sol9 box in /etc/hosts.allow. So now my laptop and desktop Linux servers are exactly the same. I also added on the Sol9 box the command "export DISPLAY=my_laptop:0.0. I can now revert back to ssh and X-windows works fine.

PS: Don't forget to issue the xhost +Sol9box on your Linux side.

:p

Thanks for the info.

However, I did find the problem. In Solaris 9 X-window forwarding is off by default. So you need to turn it on and restart the ssh daemon amd everything wil work as expected.

Remember to use either ssh -Y client or ssh-X client (The preferred method is ssh -Y)
