>Hello - I am newbie to cygwin and am having a few difficulties running X
>from a remote AIX 4.3.3 server. I am starting up the X server by running
>the startxwin.bat file. I am taking the default of "run XWin -multiwindow
>-clipboard ." I am using X11Forwarding so that my DISPLAY variable is set
>when I ssh to a server. When I run xterm on the box that I ssh to, the
>xterm does display back. However, I can't seem to be able to type anything
>inside the xterm. No characters ever show up inside the xterm. I can use
>cntrl-d to close the window. Can you suggest a way for me to correct this?
>I have experimented with the -fullscreen mode with the same results.
>Something else I am having problems with is when I run the Oracle Universal
>Installer on a remote system; my cursor basically disappears when my mouse
