X11 forwarding not working on JASMIN


I’ve been unable to load any GUIs on JASMIN since yesterday.
As usual, I log in with
ssh -AXY kieran@login1.jasmin.ac.uk
and then onto sci[1-8] from there. However, attempting to load anything with a window (e.g. xterm) gives the X11 error:
connect /tmp/.X11-unix/X1009: No such file or directory
xterm: Xt error: Can't open display: localhost:13.0

Nothing has changed from the way I usually do things, and windows that were loaded before yesterday still function fine, so I’m at a bit of a loss!


This seems to have resolved itself at some point yesterday, so I’m happy to close this ticket.

Hi Kieran,

Thanks for letting us know and glad it resolved itself.
