X Server on AIX

Hello, I am new to AIX. I am trying to upgrade one of our Oracle database and the Oracle Universal Installer requires X. All I have on my PC is Putty. Does Putty suppport X?

When I log into the AIX server I set the display as follows:

setenv DISPLAY 10.15.197.157:0.0

10.15.197.157 is the IP addres of my local PC.

I then test X using:
/usr/bin/X11/xclock

I get the following error:
Error: Can't open display: 10.15.197.157:0.0

Do I need to start X server? How do I check if it is running? How do I start it?

Thank you in advance for your expert advise.

You need the X-Server on your PC.
Try Xming:
Xming - PC X Server

I installed Xming. I tried using Putty t oset the display and test X and I got the following:

2 % setenv DISPLAY 10.15.197.157:0.0
3 % /usr/bin/X11/xclock

Xlib: connection to "10.15.197.157:0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Error: Can't open display: 10.15.197.157:0.0


Any ideas/Suggetsions?

Thank you

This is working now. The solution was to start Xming as follows on my local PC:

Xming.exe -ac

I was then able to use Putty.

Thank you for all your assistance.
