RE: How to use X-Win32 5.0 to connect to linux.



I didn't read the doc mentioned, but this is the method i use daily.
1) start X-WIn on the win machine
2) telnet on the Linux machine
3) issue the command (on Linux Machine) "export DISPLAY=<Windows Machine
address>:0.0" (for example export DISPLAY=111.222.333.444:0.0 or export
DISPLAY=name.domain:0.0)
4) launch, on Linux machine, the application you want (for example, if you
using gnome, launching "panel &" will cover Windows task with gnome task
:-))
