Description kenc 1999-04-02 10:53:15 EST
Attempts to run usernet on a remote client fail.
Apparently  it is not respecting the -display option that
all X applications are assumed to support.

I have two machines networked together, only one of which
has a modem and is configured to set up a ppp connection to
a remote ISP.  IP Forwarding is currently disabled.  Users
on the second machine use rsh to run internet applications
on the first machine.  Works fine with everything except
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-04-02 23:07:59 EST
you can use DISPLAY=foo.example.com:0 usernet to run it.
Comment 2 David Lawrence 1999-04-06 13:47:59 EDT
Could not replicate this problem on a test lab machine.
