    Xming: need help to run app. from sun host

    Hello folks
    I am not sure what I am missing here.
    I have installed Xming and lounched it.
    Then on sun host, I ran export DISPLAY='' which is my pc IP.

    After I run :srvbuild which is X window app,

    I am getting message :

    Unable to open X display. Check the value of your $DISPLAY variable.
    If it is set correctly, use the 'xhost +' command on the display machine to aut
    horize use of the X display.

    Then I ran: xhost + and getP

    sun15:/u/125/ASE-12_5/bin>xhost +
    Xlib: connection to "" refused by server
    Xlib: No protocol specified

    xhost: unable to open display ""

    I expect X window to appear on my pc screen.

    Can you help please.

    you need to run those commands on the display machine, according to error message

    since it is windows, i'm not sure how this will work, maybe xming has security feature enabled to disable network access
