how to setup xterm on GNU LINUX
Posted on 2011-04-23
I have been trying to setup xterm with GNU LINUX and searched internet but couldn't find any simple and lucid instructions.What i have understood is if i setup Xterm, i would be able to see the GUI of a software product running on Server.
What i mean is, if I have xterm setup and i run Siteminder agent script to install siteminder on LINUX server (which i access through putty) would pop up the GUI display of the siteminder Product on my Windows laptop and then i call interact and click buttons on the GUI and it will connected to server and install the software. This way its would be lot easier to install it.
What i have done is, Installed cygwin X and under that i see a lots of icons such as X win server,xman,xmh,xterm, etc.
I click on X win server and it pop ups a new white window.
Then, i login to the LINUX server through putty have X11 forwarding option checked.
and then try to run the script but it doesnt through any window.
Could you please help, how this can be achieved?
