cant open display

From my ignite server gui 'a' I can fun a make_net_recovery on all my systems. On one of my clients, an N4000, I get an error when starting a make_net_recovery from the gui on server 'a'. I get a message :

ERROR: Cant open display for xx.xx.xx.xx

Any ideas?
Window says to issue a `xhost +hostname`.
I tried this but it did not help.

Re: cant open display

When you login in:
xhost +
export DISPLAY=:0.0

Just a quick thought,

Hi

You need to export the DISPLAY first and then give the xhost + command. xhost + command should run in the hoat a, sothat other clients can acess the display server running on a.
