Thread: no remote xterm

  1. #1

    Default no remote xterm

    Hi,

    I have a problem opening an X program (xterm as example) on a remote desktop.

    what I did:
    on computer A:
    xhost + <IP of computer B>

    on computer B:
    export DISPLAY=<IP_of_A>:0.0
    xterm

    the "xterm" stands as typed in the terminal window of B, but xterm doesn't open on A. (at least I can't see it)
    did I miss something?
    Is the xterm hidden somewhere?

    both computers run under KE 4.9

    thanx
    paul

    I do not bother with all those expert things. I just do:

    on local machine I open an xterm and run:

    Code:
    ssh -Y REMOTEUSERNAME@REMOTE.MACHINE.NAME.OR.IP
    then, after I log in I can run, for example "xterm &" and I get an xterm
    running on the remote machine opening in the local machine. Or any other
    graphical tool.

    opening ports 6000:6007 in the firewalls made it working
