>:0.0 is a local display on the machine you're running netscape on. If

Actually, this is on my SS20 running Solaris7. I'm sitting in front of it,
running CDE, and wanting to use netscape because the Java browser is really
slow, and has a couple of bugs(frames don't work properly). I got it
working, but I'm not sure what I did was a good thing. I ran xauth, and had
it show me all of the allowed displays (at least I think that's what they
were). I typed in "add localhost:0.0" and then pasted the other
goobley-gook from one of the other entries after that. I tried using the
"xauth +localhost" from the command line as was suggested, but that didn't
get me anywhere. Thanks,
P.S. Sorry about the HTML garbage in my emails, the MS mailers aren't very
co-operative in letting one turn it off. Soon as netscape is running on my
Sun, I'll be sure to mail from there.
