Subject: Can't open display with PuTTY and xinit 1.3.4-1
Date: Mon, 05 Jan 2015 11:32:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

When using PuTTY with X11 forwarding enabled X clients are no longer
able to connect to the X server running locally. When reverting back to
1.3.2-1 the problem goes away.

This may be related to the -nolisten tcp which is now the default[1]. If
this is indeed the case it would be create of adding the '-listen' flag
to startxwin could be added to the FAQ. Or another, more secure,
solution would also be appreciated.
