Dear Choon-Peng,
  Thanks for your reply. But the problem is I am not familiar with this thing. I am using Cygwin Bash Shell for running Amber. I tried the command
  export DISPLAY=hostname:0.0
  and tried to run xleap again. But this time I get following error message:
  _X11TransSocketINETConnect: Can't get address for hostname
  Error: Can't open display: hostname:0.0
  I really have no idea what this mean. Can you please explain it?
  With thanks

  Dear Md. Jahidul Islam,

      Sorry, it's me again.

      Please try:
  export DISPLAY=hostname:0.0

  to have X-windows open in the local machine.

  If you did not assign any machine name, then use localhost.
  Format is:

  You may have to use the full name for the workstation.

  See if the above works.
  It might just be an X-windows problem.

  I just installed Amber 9 in my workstation (OS-Windows XP) using cygwin. The problem is I can run tleap, but i can't run xleap. When I gave the command:
  $AMBERHOME/exe/xleap -s -f $AMBERHOME/dat/leap/cmd/leaprc.ff99
  The following message showed
  Bash: Can't open the display
  Can anybody help me?
