Re: No Display on Win2000

Please try the following command in Xstart:

/usr/bin/X11/xterm -ls -display IP_OF_VPN:0

If it also fails, your VPN configuration may block connections from Unix to your Windows machine. Xmanager listens TCP port 6000.

Also check that your Windows and Solaris should have the same network address. Please compare the IP address allocated by VPN with the one of Solaris.

For further support, provide us with the "C:\Program Files\Xmanager1.3.9\Xmanager.log" file.

I am testing xstart with this configuration and it was not going.

TightVNC and PCAnywhere from home with win to my PC win2000 in the company is going.
TightVNC to Linux 7.3 is going too.

Re: Re: Re: No Display on Win2000

VNC and Xmanager are different from each other in the direction of connection. VNC is a client program but Xmanager is a server program. It means that the remote X applications such as xterm should connect to Xmanager in your Windows machine. In a firewall environment, the connection from remote Unix to your local PC may not be possible.

For further support, please let us know the detailed steps you followed and any error messages displayed during the connection. A screenshot would be a great help.
