Hi guys,

I'd like to be able to operate the pdaXrom applications from a Linux PC using X display / input redirection, i.e. sitting in front of a PC, but having displayed the applications of the Zaurus and when using mouse or keyboard, actually using the Zaurus applications.
I know this i spossible using VNC. But I'd like to try it first with the functionality which the X server provides.

In order to achieve this, I have done this:

(192.168.0.111 is the PC
192.168.0.204 is the Zaurus)

- un the Linux PC: xhost +192.168.0.204
- ssh from the PC to the Zaurus, logging in as root
- in the ssh session: export DISPLAY=192.168.0.111:0.0
- in the ssh session: start any application

However, I always get the message "Can't open display".
Even if I start the Applications on the Zaurus through ssh usig the parameter "-display 192.168.0.111:0.0" I get this message.

Does anyone have ideas about what I cold have done wrong, or what to make sure so it can work?

did you use -X option (enable x forwarding) when you ssh?

I simply do this :
- On the Z : enable X-forwarding in /etc/???/sshd.conf (don't have my Z with me now)
- on the PC : ssh -X root@zaurusip
- on the pc i can launch every app from the Z.
