Common Desktop Environment via X window

I know this is a silly one, but how do you get your CDE from an OpenVMS server displayed on your windows desktop via a X windows emulator.I did this years ago but are pressured for time. If possible the exact command would be appreciated.

Re: Common Desktop Environment via X window

Start some X software on the PC (Reflection X or any other)

On Vms, if your PC has an IP address of 1.2.3.4

$ set displ/create/node=1.2.3.4/transp=tcpip

Check that Tcpip is allowed as an X transport in
SYS$COMMON:[SYSMGR]DECW$STARTSERVER.COM;

You should have a line like the following
decw$server_transports == "decnet,local''tcpip'"

Re: Common Desktop Environment via X window

Hein,

If your TCP/IP Services is recent enough, and if your X server supports XDMCP (most do), configure the XDM service (for V5.6, see http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/83final/6526/6526pro_contents_005.html#toc_chapter_21 ), and connect and to it from the PC. After login, you'll get a full session; CDE, if the X Window system is so configured (see SYS$MANAGER:DECW$PRIVATE_APPS_SETUP.COM ).

HTH,
Martin
