Hi Jamie,

Thanks for the response. I'm not sure what you mean by a remote X app.
:)  But if it means that I have to restart Emacs between connections to
the server, then that isn't what I'm looking for.  The strength of VNC
is that I can log off it and then log on sometime later and the
environment is unchanged.

Am I still misunderstanding?

My client is Windows 2k.
