Turn the feature on by setting SUPPORT_TCP_IP to Y in the config file
(be sure to read the comments about the potential security risks and
lack of byte-order interoperability), then start nano-X with a
command line option like "-t 1234" (where 1234 is the port number you
want it to listen on), then start the client with the NXDISPLAY
environment variable set to something like 192.168.0.1:1234 where
192.168.0.1 is the server's IP and 1234 is the port you told it to
listen on. You can use a hostname and a port name instead of an IP
address and a port number if you want. There is a way to work around
the security problem to some extent, and that is to use the "-l"
command line option when starting the server to tell it to only
accept connections from the local machine, then use SSH port
forwarding to get from the client to the server.
