Thanks for ur immediate reply. Here I can't trace where my exact problem.

When i issue the command, 

#nmap < IP Addr >
It works fine. Can see some port scanned output.

#nmapfe < IP Addr >
GUI window Nmap Front End 3.48 is appeared and waits for Target specification by user. Here Target is default by 
so i din't change anything in GUI window & tried to press the scan button available in the same window. Then GUI window 
is closed & control returned back to 3 prompt and the following error is returned.

# ./nmapfe
--------> GUI Nmap front end is appeared ----> scan with default Target ---> Error & returned back to Root prompt.

Gdk-ERROR **: X connection to broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).

I think the problem is not a XTERM problem. If it is a problem, how a GUI window appears and waits for Target 
specification by user. So please let me know what is the exact problem and how to solve this.

I have installed nmap 3.48 with GTK. No errors are listed while installation. I can test other hosts port scan in 
the network thru console. But can't test it with GTK. I got the following error. Anyone can give me a solution to 
solve this.

nmapfe won't run with the following error:
# ./nmapfe
Gdk-ERROR **: X connection to broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).

Maybe it is an X Windows setup issue. Can you run an xterm from that
same root prompt?
