Hi Erich, 

thanks for the hint - this is a VERY cool tool indeed!
Good to know even in case it won't work in my current circumstances...!
Unfortunately I don't have much time to invest today  - I just made a short test and discovered that while my Linux "source" is 64bit, my VirtualBox RedHat appliance is 32bit and couldn't run the cde-exec
Actually I will try a different kind of workaround first now, where I connect to the appliance from my Macintosh host (in that case, I could have racket nicely running on the Mac...).
But if this for whatever reason fails, I will think again about a cde solution!
