Xlaunch gives confusing dialog boxes, then doesn't connect to remote host.
Clean install of Windows 7, Clean install of VcXsrv ( though I have not used the product before, and took the recommendation from alternativeto.net ).
The first screen says:
The server's host key is not cached. You have no guarantee that the server is the computer you think it is.
Then there is a text area box, for which the purpose is unknown to me, with a "show characters" check box. And this just gives confusion. There is an
OK and a
Cancel button, the purpose or function of either are entirely unclear to me.
The second screen that appears when I click "OK", says:
The server's rsa2 key fingerprint is:
<bunch of hex digits>
If you trust this host, en
The message appears truncated, because I'm not sure how "en" consitutes a way to trust the host.
This screen, like the previous one, has a text input box and a "show characters" box, the purpose of which is a mystery to me, and the
Cancel buttons, again, their purpose is unclear.
After clicking OK on this second box, the X Server starts, but no subsequent windows appear, and the applications I asked it to run on the remote host never starts.
