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