connecting two with X-server via modem (Linux X <-modem-> Sun X)

Post by Subrata Banerje » Mon, 12 Jun 1995 04:00:00



Hi,
        I am running X on a stand-alone PC/Linux (say machine A).
I dial in via a modem and
then connect to a switch to log into a sparc machine, say machine B.
Now I would like to run a X-application on machine B and would like it
to be displayed on machine A!

Any hints?
Thanks in advance.
Subrata

    I THINK the "term" program does just what you want. I am not
    sure however: I didn't use it, only read the HOWTO. It is
    part of some late Slackware distributions (well, at least
    the HOWTO is...) Good luck! And tell if/when you have any
    success...

Modem connect: minicom 1.7 (dial out pgm) + Term 2.3.5
Home machine : 486 66 Linux 1.2.9 with X11R6.
Work machine : Sparc 20, Sun OS with X11R5.

Used sxpc but does not seem to give an perceptible improvement.

If you have X11R6 on both ends you can checkout lbxproxy

Cheers

You can use ppp or slip and make your system a node on the network with
the system you dial into (if ppp or slip is running on the other end,
too).  Then you set DISPLAY just like you would on a regular LAN.  My
system dials in through a terminal server so I have to set my DISPLAY
based on the port I happen to get, instead of my system's name, but it
works fine.  e.g., if I get port 4 on the terminal server, I set DISPLAY
to "slip4:0.0".

You can also use the term package. In this way you don`t need SLIP or PPP on
the remote machine, but You can use a simple user program.
 
 
 

1. file transfer question: sun<=>telnet<=>terminal server<=>modem ?

I can get to a modem from my sun at work by:

------------------------------
% telnet pnet

connected to pnet

Enter system name: DIAL

(2400bps full duplex)
ATDT9737-3249

gdx-login: jay
password:

(stuff deleted)

gdx%

------------------------------

OK, now that I'm connected, I want to download a file from the remote host.
What can I do?
