So how do you make the SUN know you are running X-windows?

This is the sort of question I am constantly asking.
0) Sit at your machine :-)
1) Telnet or rlogin to the 2nd machine (either will do)
2) SETENV DISPLAY ipaddress:0
where ipaddress is the ipnumber or name for your node
(such as biosun.harvard.edu)
Sit back and enjoy!!
I usually have aliases for all the machines I frequently use as
displays which do the SETENV DISPLAY step
(alias dmito "SETENV DISPLAY mito.harvard.edu:0" will make "dmito"
a command to activate "mito.harvard.edu" as my display server).
Hope it helps!
