Hi, Shahed,

You need to use xhost in the Windows xterm to enable remote
clients (in this case, the Solaris box) to connect to the
Cygwin X server. You may also need to enable localhost to
connect as well. Specifically:

    xhost +<solaris_ip>
    xhost +localhost

You could also just do an xhost +, but that opens up your
display to everyone, so I don't recommend it. You also need
to make sure that X forwarding is enabled on the Windows
side. There are a number of different ways to do this, but
here's what I do to export the display of a Solaris app to
a Windows machine:

   1. (Windows) Open a Cygwin bash shell.

   2. (Windows) Start the Cygwin X server and an xterm
      with the startx command.

   3. (Windows) Allow connections to the Cygwin X server
      with the xhost command, as described above.

   4. (Windows) Connect to the Solaris machine with

         ssh -X <solaris_machine> -l <solaris_user_name>

   4. (Solaris) (optional) You shouldn't have to do this
      because you used -X with ssh, but depending on the
      Solaris app you're trying to display on your Windows
      system, you may need to explicitly export the Solaris
      display; for example, if you're using a C shell:

         setenv DISPLAY <windows_machine>:0.0

   5. (Solaris) Launch your app through the ssh connection,
      and it should display on the Windows machine.

Hope this helps,

Scott

Dear Concern,

I need a help to login to a solaris machine using cygwin. As far as I know, the command "x -query IP_ADDRESS" should bring the window of the solaris machine in to the window machine.
Can you please tell me what program has to be run in the solaris machine to 
enable this facility????

waiting for your feedback...
