How are you logging in to the VAXstation?
If you log in using the workstation monitor/keyboard/mouse, the IVP should
detect that you are on a workstation. Try:
$ SHOW DISPLAY
If you log in via DECnet (SET HOST), via a serial line or via some TCP/IP
packages (telnet/rlogin/rsh/ssh), you may need to do something like:
$ SET DISPLAY /TRANSPORT=LOCAL /CREATE
before you run the IVP so it knows where to display stuff.
