• Installing Cygwin/X
    • xorg-server (required, the Cygwin/X X Server)

    • xorg-docs (optional, man pages)
    • X-start-menu-icons (optional, adds icons for X Clients to the Start menu)

X11 forwarding with PuTTY

  • 以下の手順はセキュリティを弱めることで問題に対応しているので、内容を理解して行うこと
    • Forwarding X11 using ssh on modern desktop

      localのXサーバの -nolisten tcp オプションを外す (snip) local機の 6000番ポートにつなげられる人がちょっかい出せるようになるので、 おすすめされていない。 (xauthが有効な限りDoS以外の害はなさそうだが)

Authorization required

  • $ virt-manager
    Authorization required, but no authorization protocol specified
    Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused
  • Jon TURNEY - Re: Can't open display with PuTTY and xinit 1.3.4-1

    I'm afraid it seems '-listen tcp' is not enough for PuTTY to successfully connect. If the server was started with -auth (which startxwin does since xinit-1.3.4-1), then PuTTY will need authorization data to successfully connect. Whilst you can do this by setting the "X authority file for local display" in PuTTY's configuration to the Windows path equivalent to ~/.serverauth.NNNN, this isn't much of a solution as this filename changes everytime the server is started. Perhaps xinit needs an option to avoid using -auth? One can demonstrate that works by starting the server directly, e.g. using 'XWin -multiwindow -listen tcp' rather than 'startxwin'.

  • /usr/bin/startxwin (xint 1.3.4-9)
  • startxwin -- -multiwindow -listen tcpで起動したときの /var/log/xwin/XWin.0.log
    XWin was started with the following command line:
    /usr/bin/XWin :0 -multiwindow -listen tcp -auth 
    • -authのパスが毎回変わるため、PuTTY側で指定するのが困難
  • 最終的に、XWin Server.lnkを以下のようにすることで解決
    C:\cygwin64\bin\run.exe --quote /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c "cd; /usr/bin/XWin :0 -multiwindow -listen tcp"
