16. Using XServer

The WinaXe Plus's XServer is a program that emulates the X terminal on your PC. It is the X-server implementation of the X11R6.6 release of the X Window System. XServer allows you to run one or more X Window based client applications (X clients) that are resident on host computers. The host can be any computer that supports the X protocol across your TCP/IP network.

X client applications can be displayed in individual windows, as multiple windows contained in a single XServer's window, or in a full-screen mode outside the Microsoft Windows graphical environment. The first two methods include functions to copy and paste data between X clients and the Microsoft Windows clipboard.

While running XServer, you can initiate a login session by using Telnet, XDMCP, or Startup (REXEC, RSH, RLOGIN) methods. You can launch several X-sessions that will be running simultaneously each with its own settings. XServer can work on multi-monitors PCs.

While running XServer, you can launch any local X client supplied with the package.

The macro options of XServer let you create macro-files to remember sequences of your keystrokes. Then, whenever you want, you can play back these keystroke macros in a target X-application window by choosing an appropriate macro-file.

XServer provides German and/or French messages and text labels under the corresponding national version of MS Windows.

XServer supports the following X Extensions:

  • Extended-Visual-Information
  • XinputExtension
  • GLX for OpenGL
  • LBX

To get X Extensions supported by your system, run the following command line:

xdpyinfo -display IP_address_of_your_PC:0

XServer can connect to a remote LbxLoxy service (a Low Band Width X proxy) either by direct access to a remote host or through one of the established SSH1/SSH2 protocol connections as well.

XServer can use MESA (6.2.1), an open-source implementation of the OpenGL specification.

This chapter describes how to use XServer in all four possible modes: Full Screen mode, Single window mode, Multiple window mode, and Multiple+RemoteWM mode.
