Re: X server not reponding



Yep the host file belongs to dan.

Here's the output of setting the display manually. I'm using putty.

export DISPLAY=localhost:10
[dan dan ~]$ xlogo
Xlib: connection to "localhost:10.0" refused by server
Xlib: PuTTY X11 proxy: MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 data did not match
Error: Can't open display: localhost:10

Any ideas?

Thanks
Dan
