One of the greatest benefits of working under X is its network
transparency - the ability to show graphics on the screen of a
machine that isn't running the program producing the graphics.
If you have the same home directory on the machine you're sat at as the
remote machine (which will be the case is you stay in the teaching system)
then doing this is easy. Suppose you're sat at tw103.
If you're using research machines, then you'll need to use xauth.
Read the X and Security
document in the help system for details.
- Remote-login to club by typing `rlogin club'.
- Type `export DISPLAY=tw103:0' on club so that future
graphics are directed towards the screen you're sat at.
