I am running Centos 5.5. I am ssh'ing from my windows 7 machine (client) into my (server) linux box, with the hopes of running Matlab from the linux box in interactive mode.
When I try to launch matlab, I get:
unable to open display 'localhost:10.0' You will not be able to display graphics on the screen.
When I set my DISPLAY variable in bash, the message now reads:
unable to open display 'client ip address' You will not be able to display graphics on the screen.
I have installed the xorg-x11-xauth package.
A "grep X11 /etc/ssh/sshd_config" gives
I am using putty as my ssh. I have an x-server package up an running on the client.
What problem am I running into here?
PS Fixed. ipconfig on my windows machine shows that my address had been changed by DHCP. Therefore when I was trying to open the remote display I was using the wrong address.
