I suspect this is something simple that I've overlooked but can't quite figure out what it still is. I'm using an Ubuntu 7.04 desktop that I inherited from my predecessor and I need to run an installer requiring X on a remote CentOS server. X was never installed on the CentOS server so I went ahead and did that (along with xauth), but when I tried to run the installer it gave me this msg:
connect localhost port 6000: Connection refused
X connection to localhost:10.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
I have a small FreeBSD machine I use for messing around and I was able to run xterm remotely on there from Ubuntu. I thought previously perhaps I needed to configure iptables on my Ubuntu desktop to allow for access through port 6000, but after running xterm I've ran out of ideas. Could anyone clue me in? Thx...
