I am trying to figure out how to bring up a gui (you know, jframe, jpanels) on my pc, but with with code on a unix box.
I think I need to set the DISPLAY variable on unix to my pc ip. Is there anything else?
When you have started an X-Server on your Windows box, you can from a windows command prompt connect to your Unix box with telnet or ssh - when connected via the command prompt, set DISPLAY to your windows host/IP-adr., so that your Unix box know where - and which - X-server to use.
