[Tkinter-discuss] Opening Tkinter widgets in remote displays

Hola Jose,

As far as I know, there is nothing non-standard in Tkinter or the 
underlying Tk library with respect to X11. Any application written for X11 
should display if there is an X server available. What usually happens is 
that the application/originating host do not have the authorization to 
display. This should be within your control, if you have administrative 
authorization on the target machine. A different story would be if there 
is some sort of filtering that disallows X messages. A site which only 
accepts httpd and ssh traffic would be an example.
