Reflection X doesn't connect

I tried to use Reflection X on my Windows XP machine to connect to a HP-UX 11iv3 machine. At "Client Startup", I selected hpux and SECURE SHELL, which the machine requires, after typed in the IP, login name I hit "Connect" and a Secure Shell Client popped up and asked for password. I typed in the password and hit OK. nothing showed up afterwards: no session, no error message.
What can I do? I used putty and SSH, I logged in from the same XP machine with no problem. But I wanted an X-window, which putty doesn't provide. Please help. Thanks!

HI,

What is the error message you are getting?
did you check the syslog.log file is there any error message over there.

did you set this veriables

edit /etc/profile as,

export DISPLAY=$(getip `who -mu | awk '{ print $NF }'`):0.0

Suraj,

There is no error message. I clicked OK to connect, nothing showed up as if I've never asked for a connection.
syslog.log didn't show any error either.

I added the export DISPLAY line as you indicated in etc/profile but it didn't help.

Probably not a good idea, if you're using the
X-tunneling feature of SSH. It might make
some sense to set DISPLAY in a shell start-up
script, _if_ it's not already set.
