Displaying Clock in Remote System?

Hi Friends,

I have been given an exercise to display the system clock using
xclock command in the next system, we are in the network. How do I go about it?

This may sound rude, but I don't intend it to.

If your teacher/professor doesn't give you the answers during lecture or--even better--explain the basic idea and show you where you should look for the answers, I'd consider dropping the course. Giving the answers is lame, but it works for many teachers. Giving the tools for learning the subject material and assisting the student in their use is a far superior--and much rarer--teaching technique. If your teacher doesn't do either, you might not stand to learn much by remaining in the class.

The posting of assignments from class always strikes me as a bit odd when you could (should?) probably be asking your teacher. If not, you're robbing your instructor of the ability (and obligation) to help you learn, and you're robbing yourself of the knowledge you stand to gain. If you're paying for this class, you won't get your money's worth this way.

Again, I'm not hoping to appear impudent; just making an observation.
