i think u have misunderstood my question.
what i want is, to copy what is seen on machine "fox" screen onto my machine "lion" screen. so that I can see what he is doing on his machine. but of course he has to give permission xhost +lion.

If you're talking about Graphic Environment (Watch the other screen, Remote Control, etc), you need VNC...

don't know if it applies to the specific system...but you could always use xwatchwin.  but if xhost is disabled then you can batch xwd with xwud to create screen captures at intervals...

Why is the prompt for a VNC password a problem? VNC is free and works fairly well. Multiple people can look at what's happening on a screen. You can have exclusive control or no control over what you are watching.

i don't know if there's an openwindows or cde build for it...it's generally ported for linux and bsd variants running X11...

i just did a search on 'xwatchwin' on altavista and it pulled up several sites (again all for openbsd, netbsd, etc. )...but you might find something there.
