You could try to use ssh
ssh -X fayard@sequioa will tunnel all X windows through the ssh
connection. No need to use xhost anymore. If ssh is not installed, you
will have to beg your admin for it...
Or you could use telnet instead of rlogin, then "setenv DISPLAY
homo.genics.ip.adress:0.0" instead of the host name, that could work,

Did you know that if you play a Windows 2000 cd backwards, you
will hear the voice of Satan?
That's nothing! If you play it forward, it'll install Windows 2000.
