OpenVMS-X11

Hi,

maybe this question is more for X11 folks, but I'll try here...is there a way for a VMS application to output it's graphical interface on two X-servers at the same time?

Thank you, regards!

Sounds to me like an X server question. An
X client normally has a single server
specification ("-display"). If the X server
can do the duplication, then the client
application would never need to know anything
about it.

Perhaps something like VNC could be dragged
into this discussion, but I doubt that
there's a way to anything like that from the
X client (application) side.

Re: OpenVMS-X11

Darijo,

If you just want OUTPUT onto two X-servers I think the answer is yes. I seem to remember a "TEE" client which could be configured with on X-server as the controller (display + keyboard and mouse) and another as a repeater display. You could point your real client at the tee.

I'd have to dig (very) deep to find more detail, but if my memory is correct, it's probably a fairly general X11 tool.

Which must have been a TEE _server_.

Which must, therefore, have been a _server_.
