How to run netscape navigator with rsh and DISPLAY?
I want to launch Netscape Navigator
The 6000 port on my host is open
the host is added using xhost+
host + 192.168.0.33
If I did
export DISPLAY=192.168.0.2:0 navigator
But I want to run directly on host I have tried
rsh 192.168.0.33 DISPLAY=192.168.0.2:0 navigator
DISPLAY=192.168.0.2:0 192.168.0.33 navigator
export DISPLAY=192.168.0.2:0 rsh 192.168.0.33 /usr/bin/navigator
rsh 192.168.0.33 "export DISPLAY=192.168.0.2:0 ; /usr/bin/navigator"
But don’t work
Q: Why not ssh which is simpler and more secure?
A: This is an old host, ssh2 is not supported
Q: Why use a very old browser?
A: Is for turn on an old Bare-metal ibm server which use very old ssl protocols (ssl2, rc4 and other weak tools) for remote manage via ASMI , the modern browser has ssl3 and tls 1.1 disabled so cannot open a webpage "protected" using ssl2
Q: Why don’t upgrade ASMI?
A: This server is discontinued since 10-15 years
Solution found, was a firewall problem. I don’t know why but seems on Slackware rsh the port 1021/tcp needs to be open for rsh connections.
xhost +192.168.0.33 rsh 192.168.0.33 DISPLAY=192.168.0.2:0 navigator
For a more secure environment I will try ssh + a browser configured for very old ssl and rc40 in a vm next time.
