Single Window Mode
This mode presents all X clients in a single X-session window. Within the window, the window management and all other functions are typically controlled by an X Window System manager you start on a host (e.g., olwm, CDE, twm, mwm, etc.).
If you want to use a remote window manager, you should use the XDMCP method or start a remote window manager from the UNIX host (e.g., start xterm and then start the required window manager from the xterm window).
The X-session window itself can be sized and moved like any Microsoft Windows window. You can use scroll bars to display all parts of the virtual screen. Pressing a scroll arrow will move the window a pixel at a time. Dragging the scroll elevator or clicking on either side of the elevator will move the window more rapidly.
Note: the local mwm program (based on OpenMotif 2.0) may be useful in this mode to provide windows managing functions (moving, resizing, etc.). This allows not using a remote window manager. You can launch the local mwm program from the X-session's Run menu.
Functions that affect XServer as a whole can be selected from the X-session's Control Menu. This menu will be presented when you click on a box at the top left corner of the X-session window.
The Edit menu gives you access to all WinaXe Plus Copy & Paste commands. A number of these commands specify the current X Selection as the source or target of the command (see A Note on Copy and Paste earlier in this chapter).
Example of Initiating a Login Session by Using REXEC to Start xterm
First, make sure that your remote host is accessible from your PC (e.g., with the Ping utility) and supports the REXEC protocol. Also, make sure that your PC is accessible from your remote host. If OK, then you may initiate a login session by using REXEC like the following steps:
1) Specifying required settings
2) Initiating X-session
3) Initiating the Startup session
Note: The path to xterm depends on the operating system's configuration used on the host (e.g., the path may be /usr/bin/X11/xterm).
The xterm window should appear on your display. You can then interact with the host by typing commands in the window and starting remote applications (e.g., xclock).
