Hello Mathematica users

I seem to have the same problem as Claudia [00278]

I'm working on a Linux PC (dranse) which does not run mathematica and
I must log on a second PC (veneon) which has Mathematica installed

dranse ~]$ ssh veneon

On veneon I type

veneon$ setenv DISPLAY dranse:0

veneon$ echo $DISPLAY

veneon$ math
Mathematica 4.2 for Linux

In[1]:= Plot[Sin[x],{x,0,1}]
_X11TransSocketINETConnect: Can't get address for dranse
Error: Can't open display:

- If I try gnuplot on veneon with exported display on dranse : no problem,

- ping works

veneon$ ping dranse
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.132

- If I try logging on veneon with telnet instead of ssh, same problem ..

- I've correctly added veneon to the dranse access control list with
dranse$ xhost + veneon

So the fix proposed by Olaf [00336] does not work for me
(Did it work for you Claudia ?)

- I don't have the same Linux Kernel installed on the 2 PC could this be a
problem ?

dranse  kernel 2.4.18-14
veneon  kernel 2.4.20-8

Can anyone help me out ?

Thanks a lot
