I'm using ssh to connect to a remote server and covnc on my Mac
with OS 10.3. Connecting is ok but I can't get my remote display
to appear or acknowledge my local machine. Below is a sample
of errors I get. I've tried display 0 and 1, same result. Any ideas
please? Thanks. brett@creative-forces.net

display: Unable to open X server ()

    Try it without using SSH first to make sure you've got your connection
    parameters right.
