im with Xming
im sorry but im a little bit dumb with it. it suposes to run the graphical interface of programs of remote pc's ? well i'm not getting it.
i do XLaunch then i select option "multiple window"->start_client-> start_program=xterm(no options to chose) Run remote using putty ip of my server , user root & pasword empty clipboard enabled -> Additional parameters i have it empty-> Finish
then apears a putty window to put the password i put it but then it seems that nothing happens although putty its running in background it seems.
i don't know if i'm suposed to do this or what :s
sorry, guess you need to download putty separately. i thought it was bundled together, but i couldn't get it to work either.
this worked for me - download putty from here:
1. Run putty.exe
2. In the pane on the left, click on Session,
2. In the pane on the right, in the Host name field on the right, type your CentOS ip address
3. In the pane on the left, under Connection, expand SSH and click on X11
4. check the box marked Enable X11 forwarding
5. Click Open button
you may get a warning about keys or something, just click ok or whatever.
you should get a black terminal window pop up, prompting you to log in. Log in as root w/root's password. Now echo $DISPLAY, you should get something back. Now try virt-install...
make sure you have Xming started first, though - you should see the little black X icon in your system tray.
