I am not sure I have something totally up to date at https://sourceforge.net/p/vms-ports/wiki/Home/
1. Need the DECW workstation component installed on the VAX, along with the Motif product.
2. Get an X-11 emulator running on a system.
Cygwin/X11 needs some patches because in the name of security, it has been modified so that
X11 does not work out of the box for external system access.
I Can not get Mingw X11 to use saved preset settings.
3. Need to get fonts available to the X-11 system. Easiest way is to use an ALPHA or Itanium system running OpenVMS as a font server. Otherwise you have to copy some of the fonts from VAX to the X11 server. Fonts may or many not need conversion. (I have only used the font server method)
Other alternatives may take some programming. Get a Virtual Video buffer ported to OpenVMS get the X11 software to use it, and get the VNC port to VMS working, then you can VNC into the system.
I have heard of some experimental options/forks for adding some graphics hardware emulation on SimH. I have not looked into them.
