Hi,

I am trying to config hummingbird exceed 2007. I am following this document http://oit.utk.edu/scc/HowToConfigureExceed.doc.
According to the document, its asking me to choose SSH in the xstart. But I only have putty installed on my machine. I only see methods like RSH,REXEC,RLOGIN,TELNET in Xstart. I tried using TELNET. But i get this error:

Unable to connect to host using specified start method.

Can anybody help me?

Thank you.

not sure about the putty you have,
but the one available here will have an ssh option
http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/putty.exe


Meanwhile,
Exceed is just a windows utility.
You do not need much configuration on it.
Just install.
Start exceed,
Goto your remote server using putty/any ssh tool.
export DISPLAY=YOUR_EXCEED_MACHINE_IP:0.0
invoke your GUI.

I could be wrong here but I have found that I need .Xauthority file to exist & be properly "configured" on the DB server system.
I don't know PUTTY, but I do know that similar utilities require that X11 forwarding needs to be enable while making the initial connection to the DB server.

I do have the same exact putty like yours. But I dont see ssh in Xstart of hummingbird exceed where I should select ssh for the method.

I selected X11 forwarding in putty and tried xclock command.
It gives error: can't open display

I also did export DISPLAY= IP:0.0 and tried xclock.
Gives same error.

Please help

this works for me
export DISPLAY=localhost:13.0 <- IIRC, the value after the colon needs to be 10 or higher

Repeat from [message #218355 is a reply to message #218330 ]

I could be wrong here but I have found that I need .Xauthority file to exist & be properly "configured" on the DB server system.

Do you have .Xauthority file?

cat .Xauthority

Hmmmm....
throughout this whole thread I see no mention of OS name or version.
I'm running Oracle on both Solaris & Linux.
In both cases upon initial (first time) login to the "oracle" account (uid) using Secure-CRT with X11 forwarding enabled,
the OS automagically creates the .Xauthority file AND establishes
DISPLAY=localhost:10.0
At this point, You're On Your Own (YOYO)!
