Can't launch Object Manager
By christophersaul on Dec 15, 2005
I've seen a couple of customers testing SGD (Tarantella) have a problem with launching the Object Manager or running the standard preconfigured Linux applications after installation. A quick workaround is to turn off xauth - tarantella config edit --security-xsecurity 0 Turning off xsecurity is only a workaround though. The solution is to configure the SSHD in ipv4-only mode. Docs.sun.com tells us what to do - "Using SSH and X authorization If SSH connections fail, when X authorization is enabled, you may have to run the SSH daemon in ipv4-only mode because Secure Global Desktop may not support the xsecurity extension used on your server. You enable ipv4-only mode by editing your system SSH configuration file. For example: \* On SUSE Linux, edit the /etc/sysconfig/ssh file and add a SSHD_OPTS="-4" line. \* On Red Hat Enterprise Linux, edit the /etc/sysconfig/sshd file and add a OPTIONS="-4" line. Note If the SSH configuration file does not exist on your system, you can create it. You must restart the SSH daemon after making this change." http://docs.sun.com/source/819-4309-10/en-us/base/indepth/ssh.html Thanks to Steve Mellor and Rick Butland for helping me out with this.
