Another possibility is to run the gui via rsh on the other machine,
on the machine m1.upf.edu:

pd -guicmd "rsh m2.upf.edu /usr/lib/pd/bin/pd-gui 5400 m1.upf.edu"

If you have the rsh permissions setup, this should start the
gui on m2.upf.edu and pd on m1.upf.edu.

( .. this may only work on Linux, OSX probably too ..)
