When installing the agent from the command line by typing 
   bash-2.05a$ ./mysqlserviceagent-

The following error is returned:
  connect qa-srv-a port 6000: Connection refused
  X connection to localhost:10.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).


./mysqlserviceagent- --help


MySQL Network Service Agent
 --help                         Display the list of valid options
 --version                      Display product information
 --optionfile <optionfile>      Installation option file
 --mode <mode>                  Installation mode
                                Default: xwindow
                                Allowed: xwindow text unattended

>>> Note the above default is 'xwindows'.

When specifically running the install with --node text the installer proceeds as expected.

How to repeat:
Run the above install command

Suggested fix:
The installer should have a default setting of 'text'

I think this error could be related to a wrong environment configuration. What is the content of the DISPLAY enviroment variable? Is it possible to execute other graphical applications (xterm, xcalc...) under the same shell?

This was observed when ssh'ing from a windows box (using a Putty clinet). so there is no graphical interface.

The problem was caused by a wrong setting in the environment having the $DISPLAY st to localhost:11.0. When un-setting the environment variable (as exist on other machines) the problem was not observed and the installer ran fine.

Closing the bug.
