I had Cygwin X 64 bit running fine on Windows 7. I upgraded to Windows 10 and things stopped working.
So I wiped out the Cygwin and installed again from scratch. I installed Cygwin X 1.18.4 (x86_64). I started X server using
startxwin. I could only get xterm to work when I set
If I set
DISPLAY=localhost:0 I get
can't open display.
Also I can't have another computer throw a xterm back to Cygwin X. I get same error. I even tried throwing xterm to a Linux host and that gave same error. Windows firewall is turned off and I set
xhost + on all hosts.
Any advice on why I can't explicitly set the
DISPLAY to localhost or the local IP of my computer?
