DECwindows Remote Display? (XDM)

» close window

The Question is:

I understand that there is no way of opening
a remote XDM session with a VMS system.
Can I open a remote Xwindows session with a VMS system using the NCD PCXware
client software? We run UCX on the Alpha machine and
we can use telnet to remotely connect, but it would be much better to able
to open a remote Xwindows session. What should I configure on the VMS
system, and how should I set up the
PCXware software to do this?
For SGI Unix we configure PCXware to remotely execute xwshell (an SGI
specific command)or /usr/bin/X11/xterm

The Answer is :

  See topic (6723) for information on XDM/XDMCP supported on OpenVMS.
  Remote displays are supported via SET DISPLAY.
  rexec or rsh commands can be used to invoke DCL command procedures
  on the OpenVMS system.
  The X display must have the security settings enabled in order to
  permit the incoming X Windows display.
