I tried to forward an X application from a Solaris 11.11 Sparc machine to my Linux PC without success.
Forwarding X apps from other machines like e.g. a Solaris 10 10/08 - yes, you are reading correctly: 10/08 is running like a charm - or a SLES 11 box to my PC works fine!
So the problem needs to be resolved on the Solaris 11 machine.
What I tried with the DISPLAY variable:
export DISPLAY=localhost:10.0 #this works with the other remote machines mentioned above
leads to the message
Error: cannot open display: localhost:10.0
on the console upon starting the X app.
Also using the IP address of my PC
did not succeed, the app does not show up on my PC.
Also unsetting the DISPLAY variable does not lead to anything.
Need to mention that X tunneling through ssh is enabled:
root@puk:~# grep X11F /etc/ssh/sshd_config
What else needs to be configured?
Appreciate your help.
