I am new to this cygwinX and I am trying to make XWin work through SUN
Solaris remote server
My local PC is Sony VAIO notebook with MS XP Pro SP2
And startx and telnet works fine but not XWin
I’ve been searching FAQ for a while and tried them too.
BTW, how can I change “Owner of /tmp/.X11-unix should be set to root”?
Thanks for your help in advance

    Best Regards
