XON(1)											   XON(1)

       xon - start an X program on a remote machine

       xon  remote-host [-access] [-debug] [-name window-name] [-nols] [-screen screen-no] [-user
       user-name] [command ...]

       Xon runs the specified command (default xterm -ls) on the remote machine using rsh, remsh,
       or rcmd.  Xon passes the DISPLAY, XAUTHORITY and XUSERFILESEARCHPATH environment variables
       to the remote command.

       When no command is specified, xon runs 'xterm -ls'.  It additionally specifies the  appli-
       cation name to be 'xterm-remote-host' and the window title to be '-fIremote-host'.

       Xon  can  only  work  when the remote host will allow you to log in without a password, by
       having an entry in the .rhosts file permitting access.

       Note that the options follow the remote host name (as they do with rlogin).

	      Runs xhost locally to add the remote host to the host access list in the X  server.
	      This won't work unless xhost is given permission to modify the access list.

       -debug Normally, xon disconnects the remote process from stdin, stdout and stderr to elim-
	      inate the daemon processes which usually connect them across the network.  Specify-
	      ing  the -debug option leaves them connected so that error messages from the remote
	      execution are sent back to the originating host.

       -name window-name
	      This specifies a different application name and window title for the  default  com-
	      mand (xterm).

       -nols  Normally	xon  passes the -ls option to the remote xterm; this option suspends that

       -screen screen-no
	      This changes the screen number of the DISPLAY variable passed to	the  remote  com-

       -user user-name
	      By  default,  xon simply uses rsh/remsh/rcmd to connect to the remote machine using
	      the same user name as on the local machine.  This option cause xon  to  specify  an
	      alternative  user name.  This will not work unless you have authorization to access
	      the remote account, by placing an appropriate entry in  the  remote  users  .rhosts

       Xon  can  get easily confused when the remote-host, user-name or various environment vari-
       able values contain white space.

       Xon has no way to send the appropriate X authorization information to the remote host.
