Oh how nice! I start with ssh -X and everything goes okay. Thank you.

Hello. I know this looks like a dump question ... I wish I can find a easy tutorial, but a quick google search didn't give me one. Perhaps you can tell me where to find a good tutorial.

Now I have freebsd 5.2 & gnome 2 running on my notebook, X is started by gdm. My friend's computer run RedHat linux 9. I login to gnome, ssh login to my friends computer in a xterm, set $DISPLAY to be "mynotebook:0.0". Then I type "gedit", I'm expecting gedit to come out on my desktop, but I got "cannot open display" message.

Try with xterm, which generates much better error messages. Possible causes: DISPLAY variable not exported, nothing listing on mynotebook:0.0, "host +" or "xhost +otherserver" not run on mynotebook.

If you add the -X flag to ssh, ssh will automatically set $DISPLAY on
the other end and tunnel the display back to the local server.
