X Windows Security Lock?

» close window

The Question is:

We are running DECwindows on an Alpha Station 200 4/166.  Is there a way to
 have a password protected screen saver so that after 5 minutes the machine
 would lock you out without proper authority?  If not can you suggest a way to
 have a timed logoff much l
ike the old terminal server inactivity logoff?

The Answer is :

  The xlockmore or xhop tools -- OpenVMS ports are available -- can be used.
  Versions of xlockmore are on the Freeware distributions.
