Redirecting Display

Back to E155 Home Page

Client Machine

If the Client machine generating the display is Unix based, setenv DISPLAY mccx6.slac.stanford.edu:0.0 will cause all future displays to be sent to the node mccx6.slac.stanford.edu. Note the trailing ":0.0" in the setenv command which is not present in the node name itself.

Since we do not anticipate running our analysis code on a Vax, it is unlikely that you will have to do this. But if the Client machine is Vax based, type set disp/cre/node=esaw01/trans=tcpip to send displays to the node esaw01.slac.stanford.edu.

Note that the Display Server must be instructed to accept the display.

Details, details...

If both the Client and the Server Vax based, you could substitute decnet for tcpip.
