I am having a strange problem that I think originates with my wireless router (Linksys 4 port). I run XWIN32 client to connect to the unix machines at my school and I am having difficulty getting the client to display on my desktop. My desktop is hard wired into the switch/router and I have a laptop that connects wirelessly. The XWIN32 client works perfect on the laptop, however I always get Cannot Open Display messages on my desktop.
Inside XWIN32 I have changed the display to 0 (the laptop is 1) and in my router's UnPNP port forwarding settings I have plugged in the appropriate IP address and port range (6000) for my desktop. The settings on the client are exactly the same as laptop with the exception of the display # but I always get the errors and nothing working when I fire up XWIN32 on the desktop. Anyone have a suggestion for this? OH YEAH, when I attempt to connect from the desktop and then I check the incoming log for the router, I can see an attempt by the remote computer sending something to port 6000 on my router but for some reason the client is not either receiving or loading it properly.?????
