I am facing following problem. I have an applet kept in the remote unix server.I am trying to login using putty(telenet session) and trying to view my applet using appletviewer command.

I am getting following error

$ appletviewer A.html
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.


please help me .Thanks in advance

appletviewer opens a window, so you need an active X11 / Xorg display. PuTTy can't provide that for you, you'll need something like Exceed - a program that can connect to the X server and display its contents.

Linux already has this by default mostly, although you might need to set some flags. For example, ssh has the -X flags that enables X11 forwarding.
