xhost +ip address of remote system should do it for you.

Great tip on XDarwin
Authored by: bozhe_moy on Oct 20, '01 12:09:00AM

Thanks for the tip. xhost command added the remote server succesfully but when trying
to launch nedit it returns this message. I am a newbie and probably doing something wrong. Please help.

[andre@top,5,~]$ nedit &

NEdit: Can't open display
[andre@top,6,~]$
[1] Done nedit

Great tip on XDarwin
Authored by: bozhe_moy on Oct 20, '01 03:59:25AM

I found the solution that actually works in the maxfixit.com forum

ssh -X -l (user-name) (where-you want to connect; i.e. abc.com)

(-l stands for -"letter El not a vertical stick)

You may get a message and if you don't understand say yes and wait for paswrd prompt.
When you get in:

type

xterm &
(in that particular window , not the others that you might have open already on you desktop)
this will send a xterm to you machine

Then type

nedit &

it warks in my case

It was not my solution and I can't give a person a proper credit since he/she shows as Anonymous in that forum. Check forums on www.macfixit.com on "darwin"
