remote DISPLAY from VisAD to SGI (etc)

Hello YanChing and visad-list,
 
YanChing had trouble running VisAD on a Sun Ultra with her
DISPLAY mapped to an SGI< and I told her this had to do with
JFC - Java3D problems.  However, Nick Rasmussen reminded me
that we had similar problems that had to do with some sort of
OpenGL incompatibility between SUN/Java3D and SGI.  I don't
know the specifics.
 
The bottom line is to expect trouble if you try to view VisAD
or other Java3D applications remotely to a non-Sun.
 
Bill
