IP address is correct and  firewall is also disabled but i have no idea about xwindows server configuration in Solaris because i am new in Solaris
Can you tell me the command or document for configuring xwindows server.

After setting the DISPLAY above from a command prompt type: xclock

If everything is working you should see a clock appear on the monitor.

are you working directly on the solaris machine?  or are you telnet/ssh into it from a remote machine?


the "xwindows server" is software that needs to run on whatever machine you are physically looking at, it's the software that puts the windows on your screen.

-bash-3.00$ DISPLAY=10.23.1.9:0.0; export DISPLAY
-bash-3.00$ xclock
-bash: xclock: command not found

I connect with server through putty software. 10.23.1.9 is a remote IP where putty is running.

Sorry I've never used putty so I don't think I'll be much more help.  Hopefully sdstuber has.

I have used putty but I'm not an expert and don't currently use it now; but I'll see what I can do.

When you setup your session, you have to authorize agent forwarding under the SSH->Auth option, then under tunnels make sure the X11 box is checked and put your ip (or localhost) followed by :0  in the address box

That "should" do it I think

you weren't running an xwindows server?

that was the first thing I mentioned,
everything after that (mine and other posts) was based on the "assumption" you had an xwindows server.

sounds like you implemented the solution in the first line of the first post http:#33629497 and repeated again by johnsone in http:#33630153
