The Question is:
We have an ES-40 and just loaded the ABS Software. I and trying to start the
ABS GUI by typing
$ set display/create/node=julian
, but it keep saying
Xlib: connection to "_WSA16:" refused by server
Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server
X Toolkit Warning: Could not open display
X Toolkit Warning: Did you enter - set display/create/node=nodename??
can you explain what I am doing wrong?
The Answer is :
The error message indicates that the security settings for the node
JULIAN will not accept incoming DECnet connections from the system
on which you entered the commands.
The OpenVMS implementation of the X Server display utilizes a default
security setting that prohibits access to the display by anyone other
than the locally logged in user; remote users cannot display windows
on your X Windows display without permission. To permit access, you
will want to use the security menu to authorize the remote connections.
If you are using a DECterm display window on Julian to enter the
commands, there is already a display created. You can potentially
utilize that same setting, invoke the application directly; use the
SHOW DISPLAY command to display the current settings.
These DECwindows security settings are covered in the OpenVMS
documetation for DECwindows Motif, and can be found on a link from
the main OpenVMS documentation website.
