Hi. I am new to cygwin and xwindows. I installed cygwin including all
of the x11 packages and all of the net packages. I configured SecureCRT
to allow X11 forwarding, but when I try to run a remote program, it says
it can't open the display.
When I log onto my remote server, I am instructed to set the DISPLAY
variable to "ettin:15.0" or something similar. What is this? I'm not
exactly how to set the DISPLAY variables.
A complete listing from loging on till the error follows:
Thanks for the help,
To use the secure DISPLAY feature of ssh set your DISPLAY environment
variable to "ettin:15.0" after you get your shell prompt.
