I have winXP on my desktop and have Xming X server installed. I daliy login to solaris and linux machines via putty ssh with X11 forwarding turned on to display solaris and linux X programs to my pc.
But today I logged on the a server I never been to before and there I could not display X programs. I've tried with ssh and telnet via putty. When I login via ssh with X11 forwarding I dont have any DISPLAY varible at all. Then I use telnet and set the DISPLAY variable manualy and then try to start a program I get the following error:
root@donald-bash# export DISPLAY=220.127.116.11:0
Xlib: connection to "18.104.22.168:0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
Error: Can't open display: 22.214.171.124:0
Why do I get this?
Is there a way to restrict X displays in the solaris/linux box?
