    Your question is a bit unclear. Do you mean 'how to let users on multiple hosts share a single X server?'. If so, you could do this either by using SSH tunnels to the X server, or by starting the X server listening on TCP. The former method is done routinely by simply using an SSH login to a remote hsot, with X tunnel (ssh -X). The latter is somewhat insecure, but can be done by reworking the startx script, on most distros.

    Thank u sir,
    Actually i'm using rlogin instead of ssh. my problem was solved. It was nothing about Xdisplay. I could not open two instances of openoffice application.
    Sorry to disturb. It was due to my thoughtlessness
