Remote X-Windows "Display" Access

Hi all,

I am trying to get XScrabble running on my two FreeBSD boxes "freeserver" and "freework".

When I set it up for two "human" players on "freeserver" it asks me for the X Displays to use, eg. ":0.0" so, I try:

Human1 :0.0
Human2 freework:0.0

The problem is I get the error:
Unable to connect to freework:0.0

How can I allow permission for a remote machine to access the X Windows display?

Yes, both ARE running X at the time

Cheers!

Check out the xhost command

Simply doing xhost +
will allow all machines to display on the machine you issued the xhost command on

(Check out the man page for xhost. Alowing anyone to connect may not be the best security in the world..)

hope this helps

/Peter
