I'm not too sure that I understand what you want. Are you trying to set the display to your client? On windows you can use ipconfig to get the client ip address.
If that's not what you want please provide some more details.
[oracle@oracle1 ~]DISPLAY =oracle1:0.0; export DISPLAY
[oracle@oracle1 ~] xclock
Error : can't open display : oracle1:0.0
Is the display server running as root? Then you might need to lower security shields for the client (xclock) to be able to connect.
Or why not run Vnc under oracle account and use the X authority scheme?
PS. this looks like more of a Linux problem, so try the Linux fora instead!
xclock is normally used to test an xterm emulator so what xterm emulator are you trying to test on what platform?
Normally you should have something like
DISPLAY=xxx.xx.xx.xxx:0.0 where the x's are digits of your IP address
What is oracle1?
On UNIX you can use the finger command to find your IP.
On Windows ipconfig
But on a Windows based database system you should not need an xterm to run any of the Oracle GUI utilities: dbca, EM, etc... to begin with.
