I followed numerous guides for setup and even more "can't open display" error solution, but still can't find what's wrong. First, on VPS Debian Squeeze I installed xserver-xorg-core and xauth.
Then on Windows 7 installed xming 188.8.131.52. Then configured putty 2012-11-09:r9690 This is putty config:
sshd_config on VPS is set to:
X11Forwarding yes X11DisplayOffset 10 X11UseLocalhost yes
Xauthority file is created in
I first start xming, then connect with putty.
When I type
xlogo I get
Error: Can't open display: localhost:10.0.
I put VPS's IP in x0.hosts in xming folder. Tried to change DISPLAY to my IP, :0, localhost:0... I can't even remember the combinations. Tried to put localhost:0 in putty config. I even changed the order of lines in
/etc/hosts as I saw in one answer, but nothing works.
Update: This is putty eventlog:

Where can I check elsewhere? Any solution to this?
