First you have to tell the program where to display. It can display on any X compatible terminal on the internet, believe it or not. You tell = it
by setting the DISPLAY environment variable like this:

$ export DISLAY=3D192.168.0.1:0.0

The 0.0 part specifies the display on that terminal, as there may be = more
than one (leave it to unix, nothings ever simple :-) )

Next you have to make that display ACCESSIBLE by that program. = Normally
on a workstation, if you're the user running the program, and the same = as
the user who started X, there's no problem. Otherwise you have to do = some
permutation like this:

$ xhost + localhost
or possibly
$ xhost +
or this
$ xhost +

One more important thing. This xhost command has to be run on the = machine
where you're going to display your prgram, *AS* the user which started = X,
