DECwindows support for XDCMP?

» close window

The Question is:

Will VMS serve XDCMP based sessions?

The Answer is :

  XDCMP (X Windows serial access) is not presently available within
  DECwindows, and a serial console connection, a serial terminal
  connection, or a network connection via DECnet or telnet is most
  commonly used.
  XDM and XDMCP are available as part of TCP/IP Services, if the
  particular abbreviation specified was erroneous -- please note
  that one- or two-line questions are exceedingly difficult for
  the OpenVMS Wizard to answer, as there exists the potential
  for ambiguities, and as there can also exist alternatives for
  particular applications, configurations, or requirements.
