[K12OSN] Re: remote start of xprogram for local display



Dear Folks,
	this may be a little off-topic, but just a little. let me describe
the scenario: 1 big business server, many remote locations connected to
central location by vpn, k12os servers in every remote location. terminals
access oo and other goodies locally on the k12os local servers and connect
by ssh to business server. the business app is in character mode and
displaying X over WAN is not too good. i have many scanned documents that
are available locally. the business app knows how to push an image to the
remote k12os server (rsync). the server knows how to display the image
(export DISPLAY=.... ; gqview image-name). i am missing the crucial "magic
happens here" point - how does the business app tell the k12os server to
fire up the script displaying the rsync-ed image. rsh doesn't work, and i
am not sure if it is worth mashing security to make it work.
	please, opinions, advice, solutions
julius
