     Unfortunately I think the answer to this is that there is no good
way to do it.  The SGI version of Geomview doesn't work over the net
--- it has to be run on the local machine.  I have seen instances
where it seems to almost work -- the windows appear and some things
work, but other things don't work.  I believe we would have to rewrite
the GL part of the code to use "distributed GL" in order for it to
work, and even then I'm not sure if the FORMS interface would behave
properly.  I've forwarded your question to the "software@geom.umn.edu"
alias, in case Stuart or someone else knows a way to make it work
     The only way I know to really run Geomview corrrectly over the
net be to use the X windows version, which runs much slower than the
SGI version.
     The best solution to your problem, I think, would be to have
Geomview installed on each machine that your students need to use; the
installation can be trimmed back to take up only about 2 MB, by
cutting out all the external modules and example data files.  If you
want to do that let me know and I'll explain how.


PS to "software@geom" readers: I'm not sure if this reponse will go
to Jean directly, since I'm actually the one who sent in her original
message, so I'll send her a separate copy after sending this.
