Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions Configuration Guide

ProcedureEnable the Remote Display of Administrative GUIs

The procedure for remote display on a desktop is identical to the procedure on a Solaris system that is not configured with Trusted Extensions. This procedure is placed here for convenience.

  1. On the desktop system, enable processes from the headless system to display.

    1. Enable the headless system to access the X server on the desktop system.

      desktop $ xhost + headless-host
    2. Determine the value of the desktop's DISPLAY variable.

      desktop $ echo $DISPLAY
  2. On the headless system, set the DISPLAY variable to the desktop system.

    headless $ DISPLAY=desktop:n.n
    headless $ export DISPLAY=n:n
