NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     accessworkstation - open a	remote toolchest or iconview

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/sbin/accessworkstation [-l login] [-h	host] [-f directory]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The accessworkstation program allows the user to open an IRIX Interactive
     Desktop directory view or toolchest on a specified	machine.  It replaces
     the obsolete newdir(1) program (shipped in	previous IRIX releases).
     Users can run accessworkstation from a Unix shell command line or from
     the toolchest (Desktop > Access Files > As	Another	User or	By Remote

     The user is allowed to select interactively the directory or toolchest to
     be	viewed,	as well	as the machine and login name to be used.  The program
     starts by default with all	fields blank.  Some fields may be prestocked
     by	specifying command-line	arguments:

     -l	login
	     Specifies the user	account	login to access	on the host.

     -h	host Specifies the workstation host to access.

     -f	directory
	     Specifies the directory to	be viewed.

     For example,

	   accessworkstation -l	lee -h pacific -f /usr/tmp

     will run the program with its fields set to log in	as user	lee on the
     host pacific and launch a directory view of the /usr/tmp directory.  The
     host pacific may be the local host	or a remote workstation	accessible
     through the local network.

     When run without options, the program will	try to minimize	required
     typing by filling in the "Directory to view" field	as the user types the
     login name.  It assumes the usual directory to be viewed will be the
     login user's home directory, and it assumes the usual location for	user
     directories is /usr/people.  If user directories are rooted under a
     different directory, the user can make the	accessworkstation program
     aware of this by editing their $HOME/.Xdefaults file and adding the
     following line:

	   Accessworkstation*usualHomeBase:  <new path>
     where <new	path> should be	replaced with the usual	path for user
