I am running a Java program in two environments, windows and UNIX.  When I run my program on Windows everything is happy, but when I use my Xoftware application, or any other application to telnet into the UNIX box, I get a blue screen when my window from my program pops up.  On the contrary when I run the program right off of the UNIX box, without using a telnet program, everything is happy.  Am I missing a key ingredient here??

I assume Xoftware is some type of X terminal?  it sounds like some sort of terminal issue to me.  are you able to export other X apps without trouble?  how about other java graphical programs?

Yes Xoftware is a client-server based UNIX application that run in Windows and allows xterms to be used in a windows environment.  No go on the other java graphical programs either.  It has something to do with telneting into the UNIX box.  I have tried telnet from windows no go.  Xoftware uses telnet to access the UNIX box, no go there either.  It pops up my Panel with the correct size and correct title, but the only thing in the panel is a blue window.

it doesnt sound like a java problem, maybe you should try another unix/windows interfacing program.
