Re: Not able to connect to hpux maching using Exceed

"Not able" is not a useful problem
description. It does not say what you did.
It does not say what happened when you did
it. Showing actual commands with their
actual output can be more helpful than vague
and incomplete descriptions and
interpretations.

How, exactly?

When you try _what_, exactly?

> I've tried setting the same display
> variable there also

What, exactly, did you do?

Re: Not able to connect to hpux maching using Exceed

Hello Steven Schweda ,

This is what am trying to do .

I've started an xwindow session using EXCEED from my windows pc to hpux server (ssh).I able to start an xwindow session when i tried to login using my unix login id.
Windows pc ip:199.50.135.206
server ip:10.149.65.41
I did su - to other account.I did try starting xwindow from there after setting the display variable .But i was not able to do so.
Please let me know if you need more details.

With my weak psychic powers, I can't see what
was true "after setting the display
variable".

echo $DISPLAY

> What, exactly, did you do?

Which part of "exactly" was not clear?

What, exactly, does "i was not able to do so"
mean? What happened?

Hi

Exceed's a little more quirky than Reflection X, the X Emmulator that I prefer, but basically you start the 'X Server' application from your desktop, telnet to the unix box, set you DISPLAY variable to the ip address of you PC,

export DISPLAY=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:0.0

...Note the 0:0 at the end, this is needed.

Here's a step by step from Exceed for unsecure connections.

Hello,

I did su - to other account.I did try starting xwindow from there after setting the display variable .But i was not able to do so.

>> Did you set the DISPLAY to your PC ip address?

>> Did you get any error message when the xwindow fail to start? if yes can you please share the same.

>> Did you start the xwindow sucessfully on first time using "root" login or non-root?
