X server refuses to communicate with new connections

I've installed 2.9 on a SunBlade 100.   I'm running twm and
seem to have hit a snag.  I keep getting this error message:

   : xhost +
   Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
   Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server
   xhost:  unable to open display ":0.0"

after a while.  I can't open new windows after this.  It doesn't
seem to be related to the number of windows.  It seems to be  
more time related.

Sometimes this occurs within a few minutes but, it might take a 
day?  I'm hoping someone knows of a patch, or a setting, that 
will cure this problem.

I start X up with:

  xinit -bpp 32 -clients 1024

TIA,
Paul

Maybe the file
..Xauthority
in the user's home directory is missing or corrupted?

Corruption can happen due to diskspace problem.

The same thing happens when you have switched to a new user.

My local disk is only 15% utilized (the max in any filesystem).

The .Xauthority file had no entries.  I added one.  Just have to
wait now, it it doesn't recur in a week or so I'll consider it fixed.
I didn't consider such things since it would always work for a while.
A bad .Xauthority file should have started out bad from the get go
.... no??  I'm wondering if exmh is doing something bad.  It likes
to remove entries shown by xhost??

Thanks,
Paul

Do you have a cron job removing files in /tmp?  If so, make sure it
doesn't touch anything in /tmp/.X11-* or you will see exactly this
problem.

Doesn't look like there is anything cleaning up like that.

Now I'm getting this:

   : xhost
   Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
   Xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
   xhost:  unable to open display ":0.0"

Fixing .Xauthority file changes the error message alittle bit.

I'm baffled,
Paul

Paul, I suspect that this will not help in the slightest, but why run 
Tom's (Antique) Window Manager? Do you have similar troubles if you run 
dtwm or the Bloated Gnome?

You are right, it hasn't helped at all.

> but why run Tom's (Antique) Window Manager? 

I like twm and run it on all my *ix boxes.  It's simple, lightweight 
and I don't have to keep translating my .twmrc file into other formats 
so I can have the same, or similar environments, as I hop between OSes
- i.e. habit.  I don't like the appearance of CDE/dtwm and it always 
seems quite sluggish to me.  That's probably a side effect of these
low end desktops, rather than CDE/dtwm.

> Do you have similar troubles if you run dtwm or the Bloated Gnome?

No idea.  I disabled both immediately on this 2.9 box.  I did not
have these problems on 2.7.  If I can't get a resolution to this 
soon I'm going to install Linux or NetBSD on this thing and move along.
I've never seen this problem before on any platform.

I do appreciate the suggestions so far, but they don't seem to be
the problem.

Still baffled,
Paul

When this happens, do the files /tmp/.X11-unix/X0 and /tmp/.X11-pipe/X0
still exist and are they world writable?  Are there any errors in 
/var/dt/Xerrors ?

No, but I'm running twm not dtwm so would twm write to that file?

I'm trapping the twm stderr & stdout, I see a lot of this:

BgRegister X server insecure (must use xauth-style authorization); command ignored
BgRegister X server insecure (must use xauth-style authorization); command ignored
BgRegister X server insecure (must use xauth-style authorization); command ignored
BgRegister X server insecure (must use xauth-style authorization); command ignored
BgRegister X server insecure (must use xauth-style authorization); command ignored
exmh-bg cannot rendez-vous with UI - exiting.
  Usually this is because Tk send is not working.
  Check the notes under Frequently Asked Questions #4a and #4b.
  You can find this under the Help menu.

this is exmh.  I saw lots of this on 2.7 as well.  I'm connected to a
mail machine over a ppp connection tunneled through ssh.  Exmh is 
executing on the other end and displaying on the 2.9 machine (just like
it did on the 2.7 machine).

Still baffled,
Paul

Ok, for those who are interested.  It appears that in Sol 2.9 once the
local display is removed from the xhost/access list it cannot be added 
back and you cannot change the xhost list at all (probably not saying 
that quite right).

I noticed that my local copy of exmh (not the one displaying from a 
remote system) likes to go through and remove entries.  This is a 
"security feature".  This feature has been doing the same thing on
2.7 as well as NetBSD 1.5, and forward, BUT 2.9 apparently reacts
a little differently and locks out changes to the access list once
the LOCAL host is removed ... which exmh does eventually, when in the
insecure mode.

I am now starting xdm and this changes the behavior.  Exmh doesn't
do the removals anymore since it thinks the system is now secure
(apparently??).  And the problem doesn't seem to occur anymore.

Unfortunately, a new oddity has appeared.  Now, post will not post 
mail for exmh, declaring "Polite people say HELO first".  I have no 
idea how, or why, these two things are coupled but, they apparently
are?  2.9 is giving me a headache like I haven't had in quite some 
time.

how to tell server to refuse new client connections?
In corba, is there any way to dynamically throttle the number of client connections a server has? How can one tell the server to refuse, or stop accepting new client connections? For example - if I want the server to gracefully shutdown, I am planning to have an Admin interface with a method pause() in it, which will stop accepting any new client connections and also clean up/close backend connections.

So I just came out of the depths of docs.sun.com without an answer to this question (trying to find a needle in a haystack). Maybe someone can toss a bone my way. I have a handful of Linux servers which of course I can administer remotely. However, upon first taking them out of the box, I connect a monitor, start them up and assign an ip address. Off I go. I'm about to grab my first Sun server which does not have video output. After connecting it to my LAN and starting it up, how is it that I "get to" that server the first time? How do I address it? I can understand in larg...

Cannot connect to X server
Lately (and periodically) I've run into the problem where I can't run X progs as root. I have KDE on Debian unstable. For instance, I can't run Kedit as root, getting this error message: kedit: cannot connect to X server :0.0 xhost +localhost doesn't fix the problem. If I do su -m it does fix it.

I am trying to connect a new LBM Laptop to an SQL server on the network and I get "test connection failed because of an error in initializing provider, [dbnetlib][connectionopren(connect()),] SQL server does not exist or access denied. The laptom has sql server running on it locally and I am trying to connect to an SQL server on the network.

Looking for a list of new server console commands for D6.x or D6.5.x
Does anyone know where I can find a list of just the new server commands? I'm just looking for commands that are new with D6.x or D6.5.x I know some are in the Admin Help, but I was looking for a list of just the new ones's only. Thanks, Tim Brown I don't know of a list, but I can tell you one new one to be careful of. TELL ROUTER UPDATE CONFIG is a nice command to tell the Router to reload the configuration immediately. What you don't want to do is issue this on an R5 server. If you do, you will enable shared mail. Tim Mohrl�nt - tmohrlant@NO_JUNK_MAIL_c...

connection refused by local server??
All, Upon attempting to read mail the following error message: Could not connect to server name.network.domain; the connection was refused. Sendmail is running and accepts and delivers sent mail. What could be blocking reading?? Thanks, Dan That turned out to be an xinetd config. Now the server is refusing the password. The account is functioning, there is mail in the /var/spool/mail. However the password verify fails. Does anyone have pointers?? Thanks, Dan dan wrote: > All, > > Upon attempting to read mail the following error message: > > Could not connect to s...

X refusing remote connections.
I have an installation of Fedora Core 2 which is refusing remote X sessions. Even after setting "xhost +" on my local machine and setting the DISPLAY variable on the remote computer, I still get: Error: Cannot open display It may be a coincidence, but this seems to have started with the change to X.org.

Direct connect to the X server
I have done some experiments with graphics output to the X server in Linux/KDE using assembler code. After connecting to the server with unix domain sockets I use CreateWindow to create a window. The window is created with the given size, but the given position and border width is ignored. It is also not a simple window as I would have expected, but has a title bar with the minimize, maximize and close button. I don't know why this happens, maybe KDE intercepts my connection to the X server and modifies my requests? If so, what can I do to directly connect to the X server? Here...
