Setting up Tektronix X-Terminals with a Linux Box

Post by Mark » Tue, 16 May 2000 04:00:00

We have some old Tektronix terminals (model #X215CN) that we would like to
connect over our network and serve internet access to. Can anybody help me
with the setup? (I am running Redhat 6.1)

1. Setting up X-Terminals

Hi, everyone.

I have a rather fast linux box (pentium III at 500Mhz) running Redhat
6.1 and two laptops (running Win95) I wish to use as X-Terminals.

How can I do this?

I have connected the laptops to the "server" via ethernet cards.

I can install linux on the laptops, too, if it is necessary, but my
goal is to have the "server" do almost everything, since the laptops
are Pentiums at 133Mhz.

Is this possible?

If so, what software do I need to run on the laptops? I do not wish
them to have a separate NFS, I just want to use them as I use MSKermit
to connect to the linux box but in X-Windows this feasible?

Thank you for any tips! :-)
