yes! I'm trying open a window xterm from ssh connection.
how I'm doing:
from my windows machine ( with Win 7 ) I conneted to my X Server
machine by Puty.
there I run the xterm command.
the X server Machine hasn't a monitor!
the daemon xfs it's up
but the problem still occur:
-bash-3.2# echo $DISPLAY
