As I am at home for a few days, just a short answer:
I was using DecWindows with XFree. Our VMS is 10 years old (6.0). We use UCX 
as TCP/IP stack. I connected to VMS via rexec, starting a command procedure
for the SET DISPLAY/CREATE command.
1. I had to run xmodmap to adapt some keys.
2. What's the problem with fonts? In the 75pi directory are dec-fonts:
   term14, termB14, tech14, techB14.

If you want more information, tell me, but you have to wait a few days.
