XManager via Cisco vpn/pix

Has anyone had any success running Xmanager over a Cicso vpn connection? Our internal network assigns IP address in the 10.1.1.xxx range. However, my IP address is in the 192.168 range when I connect up via Cicso VPN (connection details). I am not certain what to set the DISPLAY variable to.

Thanks for any insight you may have.

Hey Rick, is the remote host(Unix/Linux) able to reach to your PC through the VPN connection? No matter what IP the PC is using, Xmanager can bring up X clients as long as both systems can see each other. If the PC has more than one IP address, your PC has to use the IP address it can be seen from the remote host. Use "ping" to test the connection. Good luck!
