  rlogin to the graphics-less system and run 'vadmin' (IRIX 4.0.x) or
  'chost' (IRIX 5.x).  Make sure that the DISPLAY environment variable
  is set correctly and that both the vadmin/sysadmdesktop and the
  shared library subsystems are installed on the graphics-less system
  (which they are in the default installation).

  Under IRIX 5.x, look at the READMEs in /var/sysadmdesktop/rsysmanapps
  and /var/sysadmdesktop/sysmanapps to find out how to use 'chost' to
  run commands on remote systems. Finally, in a future release of IRIX
  5.x, the sysadmdesktop tools will be able to manage remote systems
  *without* doing an rlogin.
