I'd like to use telnet from my pc (win 95) to connect to a Digital AXP7000, I have telnet programs that emulate various VT terminals but still when I try any graphic application I receive an error message: Can't open display
I know that to open a display I have use
setenv DISPLAY [terminal name]:0.0
but how can I know my terminal name from home?
I know it's a stupid question but I'm completely dry on tenlnet and unix

I may be teaching you to suck eggs but do you have
TERM=[terminal name] ; export TERM
in your .profile? TERM being the UNIX variable which defines terminal type.

To redisplay a Graphics application from a X server (Unix) onto
your Win95 machine will require that load a X emulation package
onto your PC.  There are several such packages on the market
like Chameleon/X, Hummingbird Exceed, or NCD PCXware to name
a few.  These packages effectivily turn your PC into an X terminal and allow you to run X graphical applications on your PC.
