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...]

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 will
       not 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.  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.  This changes
       the screen number of the DISPLAY variable  passed  to  the
       remote    command.     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 file.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  xon program runs the specified command (default xterm
       -ls) on the remote machine using rsh, remsh, or rcmd.  xon
       environment 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 'remote-host'.

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

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

       xon can get easily confused when  the  remote-host,  username
  or various environment variable values contain white

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