The Question is:
Can I set up an ordinary PC to be a terminal for my Alpha Station? I want to
have on my PC the exact display and commands as on Alpha.
Please tell my where can I find some documents on this matter.
The Answer is :
Remote serial connections are possible using a terminal emulator package,
and remote X Windows connections are possible using an X Windows server
for the Microsoft Windows platform. Both of these components are available
as part of the PATHWORKS 32 environment, and can potentially also be
acquired separately. Terminal emulators and X Windows servers are also
separately/independently available for Linux and UNIX platforms on Intel
IA-32 and for other architectures, and for various other operating system
platforms -- most Linux and UNIX configurations will include the necessary
software directly within the operating system distribution.
