Default DISPLAY ERROR!!

Hi,

I am using a combination of "Hummingbird Connectivity" and "SSH secure shell" to run fluent through the local UNIX machines at my university. Gambit works fine without any display problems. However, when I try to open display window in Fluent, I get the following error message: "Error message from graphics function how_Device_Info: Server does not have GLX extension." If you have encountered similar problem before, will you kindly suggest a remedial measure.

Many Thanks, Alex

fluent -driver x11

What versions of the above software do you have?

I have tried it running fluent via ssh and both Hummingbird eXceed 7.1 and cygwin/XFree86 and it works fine with both.

What do you get if you run xdpyinfo after you have connected to the unix machine. It should give you a list of the server extensions that are available on your X server.

Fluent doesn't need the GLX extension (which is not part of eXceed) but will use it if it's there. (which it is with cygwin/XFree86)
