X Window Problem

Hello all,

I have a linux box having a X server running on it. What i want to do
is to run the application
on my linux box and send the display on my machine which is FreeBSD
4.8. I am connected to linux box through telnet. I did the usual 
display stuff i.e xhost + and setting DISPLAY variable on linux
machine.  But it is not giving me the requried results : ( !
It keeps on giving me "unable to open display" error all the time no
matter what i try out.

I tried the same with linux to linux boxes ! it worked without a hitch
! The problem is only comming when linux to FreeBSD connection is
involved ! I guess this is happenin bcoz my FreeBSD box is not
accepting the remtoe X connections. Is there some configuration i have
to do ??

Any kind of help will be appreciated : ) 

Thanks in advance.

Just to set some things right:

In your case, the X *server* needs to run on FreeBSD, the X *client* is
the app you're trying to start on the Linux-box.

on FreeBSD (you want anything to connect to it):

# xhost +

telnet to linux.
on Linux:

# export DISPLAY=freebsd:0

(replace freebsd with the dns-name (or IP) of that box)

Should work

take a look in your startx script and make sure that the -nolisten tcp 
option is not specified, if it is, you'll have exactly the problem 
you're having.

X window problem
Recently I upgraded my system from RH 7.3 to RH Enterprise Linux 3. I use XEmacs-21.5-b18, but want to upgrade to newest 21.5.23. Unfortunally XEmacs doesn't see my X window.

Hi all, I'm attempting to run Matlab remotely using X-Windows. My machine is a dell dimension 2400 and running the latest version of ubuntu. The problem is on my end, as I have had no problems forwarding the X-windows Matlab GUI to other machines using this matlab server. The issue is that x-windows does indeed forward the gui but I can only see the command window. The tool bars, editor, etc are all a blank-white screen, that can be accessed, but not viewed, i.e. if I place and click the mouse at the appropriate position i get the desired response, just can't see thes...
