Tigerb: Xterm is not supported on Windows 95, only Windows NT, and only then with a program from Congruent Corp. called
" NtNiX ".

Sorry!

I can display xterm on my screen (win95) using TCP/IP protocal
if I have ethernet card. there is no other method when using
modem? then what is the "TCP/IP" setting in dial-up networking
used for?
thank you for your answer.

Tiger: Indeed you can display xterm, unfortunately you just can't do anything with it unless you have an NT platform to access with it. You can dial into a Unix based system just like you do for the internet, however you must determine what their protocol use is and whether you are connecting to a PPP server that supports the Password Authentication Protocol (PAP) or the Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP), all you have to do is click the Dial-Up Networking connection you defined and type your user name password in the Connect To dialog box. You can also dial-up using SLIP, as long as you set it up correctly. Most of this info can be found in the Windows 95 Resource Manual.

To use your ethernet card, the Unix admin will need to provide you with gateway information as well as setup access for you.
