Remote client cannot display on local xfree-cygwin
Thu Dec 27 11:46:00 GMT 2001
I just installed the latest cygwin and cygwin-xfree86 on Windows 2000
Professional, service pack 2.
I am able to start the Xserver using the startxwin.sh script provided
with the cygwin-xfree86 distribution. I can start an xterm client
I would like to start an xterm client on a remote machine and have it
display on my local cygwin-xfree86 X server. However, this does not
work. It appears that the X server is not even listening to port
If I shut down the cygwin-xfree86 X server, and start the MicroImages
MIX X server, then the same remote machine is able to display an xterm
client on the local MIX X server. This indicates that networking is
functional on my local machine, generally speaking.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
