I believe this would be the windows station IP address you are pasting the picture.

Here it is a free X Server for Windows:
You must install it and start it. You must configure to use display/port 0.0
After that with your DISPALY variable set on your HP-UX shell, you should get the X display on your windows. (check by starting an application like xclock)

Thanks for your guidance. I installed xmanager on my xp machine. In the xmanager browser when I give the IP of the server it does'nt connect. Is there any permission which I need to give from server side to accept remote connection? If yes then guide me how could I able to give permission from root user to remote connections.
Your help your be appreciated.

I believe that this is not free software. Why not using xming?
I am not familiar with xmanager. Read the documentation.

When I am trying to download Xming, it asked me a username passport (screen is attached). Kindly tell me which username pass i need to give.
Also tell me which version I need to download there are several versions 184.108.40.206 is the lastest with size (3.76 mb).
Your help would be appreciated.

I nstalled Xming (pls check attached file). I appreciate if you could provide me some screen shots that how to connect with unix server.

You must now open an ssh connection (use putty) to you HP-UX then set the DISPLAY variable.
Start an x application on the same shell to check things are working:

I have noticed on your first screen that you are using telnet, not ssh.
By the way, you should use ssh (it is secure)

Ok i will use ssh later. But pls tell me how can I connect with unix server with xming??? also send me some snaps shot that how to configure xming now eg: where to give unix server ip.

Just as I said above:
1. telnet into your HP-UX server
2. On that shell (on HP-UX) you give those 2 commands:
3. Test if all is working by starting an X application from the same telnet shell:
If all is Ok, you should get the output on your Windows station.
>also send me some snaps shot that how to configure xming now eg: where to give unix server ip.
You must set permissions to HP-UX server to use your X server by editing some file from the directory where you installed Xming (typically:
The file is X0.hosts
Use worpad to insert a new line with your HP_UX server IP address like this:
This would do the job.

Here are some screenshots on how to set up X forwarding with putty. For this you need to have Xming running in the background on your desktop PC. (A small X icon appears on the right of the taskbar if you run Xming)
hope this helps,

I triead to Set display variable path and got the following error:
# echo $SHELL
# export DISPLAY
Xlib: connection to "10.1.0.45:0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
Error: Can't open display: 10.1.0.45:0.0
Error: Couldn't find per display information

if you follow the instructions here, the DISPLAY parameter will be set automatically:
Putty will set it if you log in by ssh.

What is "10.1.0.45"? And is it running an X
server? Apparently not, or else you don't
have permission to use it.
telnet 10.1.0.45 6000

>Xlib: No protocol specified
Did you start xming with XLaunch? If not, just close the current server (Exit) and go to Start/All Programs/Xming/XLaunch
At Additional parameters window, select "No Access Control" (put the check sign)
You can save this configuration on your desktop for later re-use (next time when needed the X server, just double-click on this icon and you will skip the Next/Next part...)
