ftp/rlogin + remote control issue
I spent a few hours trying to fix my network problems, with no success... I hope i'm posting at the right place:-?
I'm the happy "administrator" of 2 linux boxes under RHEL (both connected to a Windows network).
-distro box 1: 2.4.21-40.ELsmp
-distro box 2: 2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp
Issue 1: ftp and rlogin works fine from box 2 to box 1, but i can't make it work from box 1 to box 2.
error messages when trying ftp connection:
ftp: connect: Connection refused
error messages when trying rlogin:
box2: Connection refused
note: I cannot ftp/rlogin from a Windows PC to box 2 either.
Issue 2: launching remote applications. from box 2, i open a terminal window and do the following:
1/. xhost +
2/. rlogin box1
3/. export DISPLAY=box2:0
4/. i try to launch a remote application (say, nedit)
I get the following error message :
NEdit: Can't open display
note: i can use Exceed to launch remote app's from a Windows PC to box1 whithout any problem.
Please just ask if you need extra information.
Thank you in advance!
