     XON(1)		X Version 11 (Release 6.4)		XON(1)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  xon -	start an X program on a	remote machine

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  xon remote-host [-access] [-debug] [-name window-name] [-
	  nols]	[-screen screen-no] [-user user-name] [command ...]

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  Xon runs the specified command (default xterm	-ls) on	the
	  remote machine using rsh, remsh, or rcmd.  Xon passes	the
	  variables to the remote command.

	  When no command is specified,	xon runs 'xterm	-ls'.  It
	  additionally specifies the application name to be 'xtermremote-host'
 and the window title to be '-fIremote-host'.

	  Xon can only work when the remote host will allow you	to log
	  in without a password, by having an entry in the .rhosts
	  file permitting access.

     OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  Note that the	options	follow the remote host name (as	they
	  do with rlogin).

	       Runs xhost locally to add the remote host to the	host
	       access list in the X server.  This won't	work unless
	       xhost is	given permission to modify the access list.

	       Normally, xon disconnects the remote process from
	       stdin, stdout and stderr	to eliminate the daemon
	       processes which usually connect them across the
	       network.	 Specifying the	-debug option leaves them
	       connected so that error messages	from the remote
	       execution are sent back to the originating host.

	  -name	window-name
	       This specifies a	different application name and window
	       title for the default command (xterm).

	       Normally	xon passes the -ls option to the remote	xterm;
	       this option suspends that behaviour.

	  -screen screen-no
	       This changes the	screen number of the DISPLAY variable
	       passed to the remote command.

	  -user	user-name

     XON(1)		X Version 11 (Release 6.4)		XON(1)

	       By default, xon simply uses rsh/remsh/rcmd to connect
	       to the remote machine using the same user name as on
	       the local machine.  This	option cause xon to specify an
	       alternative user	name.  This will not work unless you
	       have authorization to access the	remote account,	by
	       placing an appropriate entry in the remote users
	       .rhosts file.

     BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  Xon can get easily confused when the remote-host, user-name
	  or various environment variable values contain white space.

	  Xon has no way to send the appropriate X authorization
	  information to the remote host.
