> [...] hp-ux server [...]

uname -a

If you want something to pop up on your
Windows XP display, then you should probably
be asking about how to do that in a Microsoft
forum. When you determine how to run
something on your Windows system which will
display what you want displayed, then you can
start to worry about how to run that program
from some remote HP-UX system. Again, you
may need to worry about the software on your
Windows system, because the usual UNIX-like
remote shell services (rsh/remsh, ssh, and so
on) may not be available on your Windows
system, and those are what I might want to
use to run some message-display program on
some remote system.

Have you considered doing something simple,
like, say, sending an e-mail message?

Re: how to send pop messages to windows xp desktop from hp-ux server

hi,

as Steven said, email is probably going to be the best thing for this, but there is the write command in unix? you could possibly play with this but you would need to be logged into the unix box with some sort of terminal emulator or telnet or it will fail.

In XP you have net send app but lots of organizations block it from been used.

or you could possibly look at samba, within this you can send popups to windows clients from the smb clients?

VUE was replaced by CDE years ago, possibly before 11.00.

I believe CDE became the default at 10.20. I think VUE was still available though.
