CFX5 and VNC

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

Re: CFX5 and VNC
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=

WHERE is the IP address of your machine

Hope this helps

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.

Re: CFX5 and VNC
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..

Re: CFX5 and VNC
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.
