1) For MacOs9.1 on PPC 7100/66 built in '94, Download MacSSH

(www.macssh.com) version  21fc3. Install, double-click icon and  configure(Favorites-->Edit-->New-->SSH2 : authentication [all...];encryption[MD5];compression[none];x11 port forwarding;method [Local TCP port forward];Local Port[6000];Remote Host[192.168.2.6];Remote Port[6000]; Alias[Armada].  --<General Tab:Host Name [192.168.2.6]. Okay. OK.

2)Armada 7400 is online via DHCP Wi-Fi (Avaya) to Belkin 7230 which gave it the IP 192.168.2.6. On the Mac94, MacSSH click File-->Open Connection[Armada]; Connect.. Login. $sudo vi /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config change the last line to read: !DisplayManager.RequestPort; 0 and write it using :x $sudo vi /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess add a line with an * (asterisk) on it (not the word) and write it $export DISPLAY=192.168.2.2:0. $sudo kill -HUP `cat /var/run/xdm.pid`

3)Download MI/X (http://www.pure-mac.com/remote.html#mix) which leads to: http://nic.phys.ethz.ch/files/x11/mixppc.sit.bin

 Install, double-click icon and configure(File-->Preferences:Hosts:Remote Clients[allow any]; Add hosts[localhost];  -->X  Preferences: XDM[Broadcast];Hosts[127.0.0.1]. OK. Quit. Restart the Mi/X application.

4)The Belkin 7230 gives the Mac IP# 192.168.2.2 via DHCP. In the MacSSH connection window, do : $export DISPLAY=192.168.2.2:0 $xclock&

5) on the X MI/X window, click the mouse and move the clock to the side of the display. Start other X applications the same fashion. eg. xterm, xcalc, xbiff, xload,mozilla,synaptic,etc.
