Telnet and Remote Display Not Working
Posted on 2009-03-31
I've installed Knoppix and configured the Ethernet with no issues. Ran "ssh" between my two servers and working great. I'm attempting to remote a xterm between the two servers and it failing.
What I've found on startup was the "DISPLAY" variable is set to ":0.0".
When I ran the following on just one of the servers to ensure that I can start xterm on the local server:
1) Executed "xterm" with DISPLAY set to :0.0 and no problem
2) Ran "export DISPLAY=192.168.222.50:0.0" and then ran xterm and got the following error:
xterm: can't open display 192.168.222.51:0.0
3) Ran "xhost +) on this local server and got the following error:
xhost: can's open display 192.168.222.51:0.0
When I attempt to telnet to other server or the local server I get the following error:
telnet: unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused.
I really need to understand what's going on with the remote display issue before the telnet issue. I can remote a "xterm" window from the Knoppix server to a RedHat 5.0 server, but not the other way.
