E.2 Displaying a Remote Client on an OpenWindows Machine

You can run X11 clients from VMS by using the SunLink DNI dnilogin command to log into the VAX system. First, set the environment variable DISPLAY on your local machine to be the X11 server on the remote machine. Then run an X11 client by entering the name of the client, represented here by x11_client. (See the VMS DECwindows User's Guide, Running Applications Across the Network for more information on using the VMS operating system.)

For example:

$ dnilogin decvax
$ define DECW$DISPLAY OW_machine::0
$ spawn/nowait run x11_client
