Mac Os x system can't connect to X server when using ssh to access Linux system
 
Hi,Dear all,

I am using my Mac Os x to connect to another Linus machine via ssh to run OpenFoam and ParaView. But however, When I type "paraFoam", it give me "Cannot connect to X server.
When I connect to this Linux Computer, i typed " ssh -X username@ip.address

Please help.
I am really new in Linux and Terminal and OpenFoam ><

Regards,
Ivy

Greetings Ivy and welcome to the forum!

I guess you've already figured part of this already, but here's a tutorial on how to configure the basic "ssh -X" stuff: http://dyhr.com/2009/09/05/how-to-en...-os-x-leopard/

As for using OpenGL, I'll answer on your other thread: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...p-address.html

Best regards,
Bruno
