Hiya

I cann't access any of CFX GUI features using VNC remote access. I used VNC remote access to display my UNIX account on my home PC. CFX5 command works though. But as soon as I click pre or post, it dies or freezes. The error message is XLIB extension GLX is missing. Does anybody have idea on that? Your suggestions would be much appreciated

if you are trying to remote access to unix machines from your windows machines, make sure of the following:

1. You have Exceed or some x-client installed on your machine. If so lauch this program first

2. If Exceed or other X-client products are installed, you will then need to export the disply form your Unix machine to your machine. to do this use the following command

export DISPLAY=10.112.3.1:0.0

WHERE 10.112.3.1 is the IP address of your machine

Hope this helps

Hi test Thanks alot! But I need to be cleared with this: the "exportDISPLAY" have to be typed in the UNIX command line, right? Thus after I log on to he UNIX machine, and I'm in the UNIX wor.....". Is that what you meant? P/s lemmie before I try. On the otherhand, I'll give it a try and get back to you.

Thanks once again.

If you have some X-client software, then only the following thing will work...

# Log on to your unix machine using telnet from your windows machine... This will be the fastest way.. # start your x-client application... # Before trying to open anythig, type the following in the telnet window...

export DISPLAY= ipaddress:0.0

note that export and DISPLAY are different words..

For Pre and Post to work you need not only Exceed but also Exceed3D(additional product) in my case it works after I installed Exceed3D.
