telnet installation problems
Mon Dec 10 13:58:00 GMT 2001
I don't have that doc, /usr/doc/Cygwin/inetutils-x.x.x-README.
I'm reviewing the Cygwin/XFree86 User's Guide.
I'm from an NT background so I'm expecting to go the the cygwin command box
and type 'telnet'.
I've tried this next according to the users guide, what am I missing?
$ ./xhost targetbox
./xhost: unable to open display ""
I'm trying to telnet according to page 16 and page 17 of the Cygwin/XFree86
On your Windows machine:
1. Launch Cygwin/XFree86
2. In an X terminal type /usr/X11R6/bin/xhost remote_host_ip_address
3. In an X terminal type /usr/bin/telnet remote_host_ip_address. Use the
path to ensure that Cygwin's telnet is run instead of Microsoft's telnet;
Microsoft's telnet will crash
on startup when run from Cygwin/XFree86.
4. Login to your remote machine via your telnet session
5. In your telnet session type, DISPLAY=windows_host_ip_address:0.0
6. In your telnet session type, export DISPLAY
7. You can now launch remote X clients in your telnet session, for example,
xterm& will launch an
xterm running on your remote host that will display on your Cygwin/XFree86
8. Launch other remote clients in the same manner; I recommend starting the
remote clients in the
background, by appending & to the command name, so that you don't have to
open several telnet

I'm starting the desktop cygwin.bat.
I've attached my setup.log and full log of what's installed.
I'll lookup the doc you recommend in the meantime.

Which modules did you download and install? You can access this
information in the setup.log, or maybe you remember the modules you

How are you starting it? Are you talking about the telnet client or
server? Have you read /usr/doc/Cygwin/inetutils-x.x.x-README? Are you
trying to start it from a bash shell? As a service? Please describe the
problem (and give us details), and then maybe more people can help you.

Your mouse has moved.
