Dear useRs,

Sorry, if this is a FAQ.
I just need the direction to dig.

I am working on the linux box (its DNS name is raccoon, to be
definite), Fedora Core 3.

I connect with ssh to another linux box (Debian, dns name chena) and run R on it.
When I call a plotting function from the R command line, it produces the file Rplots.ps,
containing the required plot.

I am running X on the raccoon.

When I run R on the raccoon and call a plotting function, I see a
window with plots inside.

I would like to see similar window on the raccoon, as a result of call
to plotting function when R runs on chena.

Is it possible?

I played a bit with setting the DISPLAY environment on chena, but
without success.

Best regards,
Vladimir                mailto:wl at eimb.ru
