Re: Remote X session -- Confused!



Mike:

If I remember properly:

1. The display machine MUST be in host file
2. The display machine MUST be in hosts.equiv file
3. The display machine MAY be in $HOME/.rhosts
4. You MAY need xhost + set on the display machine
5. Check to be sure that xdm or gdm or kdm is set up to respond to remote queries
6. Below is a little script I use to start X apps without xdm. Make it executable and run it as Xstartup ipaddr app1 app2 where Xstartup is the script name, ipaddr is the i.p. address of the display machine, and app1, app2 are the names of X apps for example Xstartup 192.168.200.1 xterm xclock

I hope this helps. Get back to the list with your results.

#!/bin/sh -f
# $HOME/Xstartup
PATH=$PATH:/usr/X11R6/bin:
PATH=$PATH:.:
export PATH
DISPLAY=${1}:0.0
export DISPLAY
$2 &
$3 &

Hi,

I am trying to get a remote X desktop to launch on my linux box to
another linux box (ie. want a remote X session to another machine)

Both machines are running XFree86 4.2.
The remote machine is running xdm.

I have read through many docs telling me to do different things to get
the session to go. (differnt args to startx, etc)

The closest I have got is "startx -- :1 -queryhost 192.168.200.10" where
192.168.200.10 is the remote host running xdm. This seems to actually
contact the remote machine, but the remote doesnt seem to respond. I
have edited the Xaccess file on the remote machine to allow any host to
get a connection....yet....no luck.

Anyone have the "definitive" answer on how to get this to go????

Thanks

Mike
