Remote X Windows Display? XDM?

» close window

The Question is:

X-Window remote session!!
I know neither OpenVMS nor DECwindows do not offer the XDMCP capability.
I would like to know how can I obtain an X-Window session of an Alpha server
 (DS10) in a PC or VT terminal by an ethernet.
Is that possible?
which kind of software or hardware I need?
If I have to remit my question to another place, please let me know!
thanks in advance!

The Answer is :

  XDM support is available with current OpenVMS, TCP/IP Services,
  and DECwindows.  Specifically, see TCP/IP Services V5.1 and later.
  Remote displays without XDM have been possible since the inception
  of DECwindows, and support is available for an X Server accessed
  via IP, DECnet, or the local memory transport.  If you wish to
  display X Windows sessions remotely, you need to acquire and
  configure an X Server for the target display system, and you need
  to use the SET DISPLAY command on OpenVMS.
