http://www.linuxquestions.org – This is the first time I have setup an xforward to a Windows machine using xming. If I enter a remote command like /usr/bin/firefox in the SSH section of the putty configuration an xforwards firefox will start on windows. If I simply have x forwarding enable attempt firefox &. I get the display not found error. Error: cannot open display: localhost:0.0 I have tried to set the display the IP address of my Windows machine and this does not work. What is missing with my config? Thanks, Andy Scott (HowTos)
