hi guys! i tried this feature suggested by hamei with his O2 and O300 to my O2 and Octane.
I followed the guides but what happened is I CAN see the Toolchest of my O2 from my Octane, BUT i CANNOT access my Octane's Toolchest from my O2. They are all in the same network and both end can ping each other. I'm not sure which workstation miss something, sorry for this noob questions, is this about daemons i haven't set properly? or network configuration? will investigate more later after office, thanks in advance! :)

Might be an issue with xhost configuration.

thanks jose! hmm i see, but before i tried this i made sure on my /etc/hosts file, i manually put each its opposites IP address and names, i mean on Octane i put the O2s host info and vice versa and restarted. theni tried to ping using their names its ok. will try to use xhost+ on both end and see if it helps. but i thought if i use the Enable Remote display, this is already handled right? will investigate then

Should be but maybe didn't stick ? Have the same user on both machines ? Have you tried < rlogin -l (username) (remote_hostname)> ? Might give you a hint ... if that works and you get a remote terminal open, then try <some_binaryname -display (local_hostname)> [e.g. <nedit textile -display O2_name>] and see what happens. That should open your application and display it on the local host.

It's so nasty I dropped in to Hell this morning for a few minutes to cool off. Gotta be worse where you are tho. I hate this time of year, all those boobs on display but I'm too lethargic to appreciate it. What a waste :(

You do need to double-check to make sure that all account names have the same UID on both ends.

hahaha indeed! if there's worse than Hell, then its here!! even my air condition is useless, just sleep half naked ;)
hahaha and are you sure those a real? :shock: me, i like this time coz plenty of shiny legs can be seen ;)

ok i tried rlogin and result is:
From Octane to O2 = its ok, i can connect
From O2 to Octane = Connection refused :(

Already check all network related files and daemons, both machines are the same

On UNIX systems, users are actually tracked by the system by their UID, which is a number, and not by username. UIDs are set in /etc/password (the third field in the colon delimited file), and the id command gives you details via the command line.

All the way up to where they stop, in some cases :)

About the boobs, proper identification is a skill to be developed through long and arduous study, grasshopper. The giveway is motion. The big bra, small boobs disguise does not swing and sway properly. Neither does the foam rubber system. Only the True Example will correctly jiggle, jounce, and in the best cases, float rythmically from side to side. Observe them on a walking carrier, that's the best training.

thanks jose!! geez why i forgot about this, i used this when setting up SFU on my WinXP :( thanks again and already utilized it

checking at the passwd file on both system, there were three difference:
root = password field (not necessary)
nobody = octane has 60001 UID and GID; while o2 has -2 UID and GID
geo = my user name which only exist on my octane

ok my questions are:
* should GID also be the same as possible? or just the UID is enough?
* should i create geo on my o2 to have it the same as my octane?
* which one should i use for nobody, 60001 or -2?

If you're using rlogin/rsh, make sure you've set up $HOME/.rhosts for the accounts in question, or /etc/hosts.equiv for each participating system - in addition to making sure the accounts exist and the UIDs match. See the man pages for rsh(1) and hosts.equiv(5).

UID is the important one. If you have the same GIDs then it can make some admin simpler, but is not necessary (the local system is responsible for groups, so if the UID is in the right group it has access).
