Unable to open display ""

This error occurs when the DISPLAY variable is not assigned. However, Xmanager allows all incoming connection by default. So, if you cannot open X application, the problem is most likely not related to xhost.

To help us understand the problem better, please explain the problem in more detail and what you mean by ¿display forwarding.¿

Thank you for your cooperation.

FYI, if you are using TELNET, you can set the display variable like this:

# export DISPLAY=$PC_IPADRESS:$DISPLAY_NO

For example, if your IP address is 192.168.1.7 and Xmanager is runnign on display number 0, then the command should look like:

# export DISPLAY=192.168.1.7:0
