Ensure $DISPLAY is set and pointing to the PC (Xserver), e.g.
export DISPLAY=my.ip.add.ress:0.0

Ensure the Exceed Xserver is running on your PC - Probably visible as an item on the task bar or as a process "Exceed" visible in Task Manager

Hi,

I had checked both these ... but I had not exported the $DISPLAY variable.

I did that and it worked ...

Thanx
Dev.
