setenv DISPLAY
I heard you can do this I'm not too sure... I have an account on another machine (school) and I want to view my desktop from school at home on my linux machine... someone told me to use the "setenv DISPLAY hostname" but it doesnt work.. I guess i may be doing it wrong.. any one any suggestions??

Are you using a linux or windows machine at home? I use Xwin32 on my windows machine at home then set it up for my Internet IP address not my LAN IP then use indirect broadcast XDMPC with Xwin32. I then telnet into the schools computer use setenv DISPLAY <IP Address>:0 then type startkde or what ever and it shows up in Xwin32 window. Hope that helps.

You will also have to allow your home computer to connect to your school computer.

This is done by the command xhost.
This command you run on your school computer. xhost + will allow all computers to connect to the machine.
