I am using Putty to install Oracle 10gR1 on my RHEL4 server.
Specified X11 forwarding on Putty and I am able to use the graphical components of RHEL like lvm for example. But every time I run ./runInstaller from my Disk1 oracle install disk, i get the following error:

Checking installer requirements...

You still need an xserver running on the PC so it can connect to the display.

I have Xmimg already running on my PC and it works fine for other services running on the server like system-config-lvm and firefox.
The problem is basically with the Oracle 10gR1 runInstaller.

Here are the last lines I found on the Xming log ( I masked the IP with x):

AUDIT: Mon Oct 06 17:01:00 2008: 608 C:\Program Files\Xming\Xming.exe: client 4 rejected from IP xx.xx.xx.xx
AUDIT: Mon Oct 06 17:01:16 2008: 608 C:\Program Files\Xming\Xming.exe: client 4 rejected from IP xx.xx.xx.xx
AUDIT: Mon Oct 06 17:01:26 2008: 608 C:\Program Files\Xming\Xming.exe: client 4 rejected from IP xx.xx.xx.xx
AUDIT: Mon Oct 06 17:01:36 2008: 608 C:\Program Files\Xming\Xming.exe: client 4 rejected from IP xx.xx.xx.xx

I also have the Remote X11 authentication protocol set to MIT-Magic-Cookie-1 in Putty.

Thanks.

I'd usually fix this by typing xhost +.

Just downloading xming now to see what happens.

It looks like it is a permissions issue. If  I try xclock with root it works. With the Oracle user I get this error:
Xlib: connection to "localhost:10.0" refused by server
Xlib: PuTTY X11 proxy: wrong authentication protocol attempted
Error: Can't open display: localhost:10.0
[1]+  Exit 1                  xclock
 Does anybody know wat I need to change to make it work for other users beside root?

Finally I was able to execute the  runInstaller!

I was able to do it using XDM-Authorization-1 instead of MIT-Magic-Cookie-1.

Thank you all!!
