I have a vncserver running on AIX platform. When tried to do a xhost +, it
will give me the below message,

access control disable, clients can connect form any host
1346-217 xhost: must be on local machine to enable or disable access

Why I need to do a xhost +? It is because from a remote machine, I tried to
display to this VNC viewer and it gives this message,
Xlib: connection to "mymachine" refused by server
Xlib:Client is not authorized to connect to Server
Error: Can't open display: mymachine

Does anyone have this problem before?
