Invoke a Remote Terminal via CDE's Main Panel

On Common Desktop Environment's Main Panel, there is a small globe located near the workspace switch. Click on the globe and a gui should appear. Type in a trusted (remote) workstation's hostname and then hit enter. The remote's terminal window should pop up.

What's handy about this? You didn't have to rlogin, invoke xhost, or manually set DISPLAY. That was done automatically.

Here's what you need to put into the gui's field.

@remote_hostname
