135. How to Start a X Client on Another Display

A: To start a X client on another system that has a running X server, use the following commands:

*Use xhost on the server system to allow the client system use the display. If the server's IP address is 192.168.20.1, enter the command:

    $ xhost + 192.168.20.1                                                   
*On the client system, open a telnet connection to the server system. *In the telnet session, start a xterm in the background with the -display and -e options. For example, if the IP address of the machine running the server is 192.168.20.1 and the client program name is named clientapp, use the following command:
     $ xterm -display 192.168.20.1 -e clientapp &
