that won't work. and the reason it won't work is because its his sun box
that's refusing the connection not his linux one. this will work on windows.
i used it for 2 years this way. i noticed there isn't an xhost command
anymore but in CDE there was a GUI front end for it (i don't use the GUI
anymore and haven't for a long time but after an initial install before i
remove the keyboard/monitor/mouse i set up the initial accounts via the gui
front end to useradd and poke around to see if anything's changed in cde or
anyway the long and the short of it are he has to do two things
1. make solaris allow exported xsessions
2. tell it where to export it to
xhost appears to be gone but setenv isn't. i did this in a cshell
