I am trying to run the following rsh command but cannot get it to work properly.  A xterm and dxclock come up but it is on the server I issued the rsh on.

rsh server2 setenv DISPLAY server2:0.0 ; /usr/bin/X11/xterm -e dxclock

Note: I will be running a c-shell script instead of dxclock.

Use single quotes -
rsh server2 'setenv DISPLAY server2:0.0 ; /usr/bin/X11/xterm -e dxclock'
