X11 Client/Server Programming on Panther
Authored by: crarko on Feb 15, '04 08:37:00AM

What you could do is log in to the Sun system and redirect the display using X11. That's the 'client/server' notion that makes X11 so useful.

The (client) appilcation would actually execute on the Sun machine it's built for, but the GUI window server can be running on your PowerBook, from pretty much anywhere in the world if you have ssh or VPN connectivity to the Sun workstation, and a valid account to use it.

X11 Client/Server Programming on Panther

Hello and thanks for the replies.

I guess as long as I'm showing just how much of a newbie I am, I might as well ask how this would be done. I'm basically familiar with the terms VPC and SSH but not implentation of it.

Can you recommend a source of information on how to set this up?

Thxs in advance
