Multiple+RemoteWM Mode

This mode is the above Multiple mode, but the local MS Windows window manager does not control windows of X clients and a user has to run any suitable remote window manager. The mode is very convenient when users use CDE-like interface where a remote window manager provides its own tool/task bar. In this mode, XServer can work on multi-monitors PCs.

Note that the Restore/Minimize items on the XServer menu provide "visibility" of XServer background in an additional small window. This "x-root window" may be used to control functions of the remote window manager used (usually by pressing mouse buttons).


Example of Initiating the REXEC Session to Start xterm via SSH

First, make sure that:

  • your remote host is accessible from your PC

  • your remote host supports the REXEC protocol for your PC

  • sshd-daemon (or sshd2-daemon) is running on your remote host

  • your PC is accessible from your remote host.

If OK, then you may initiate the REXEC session via SSH like the following steps:

1) Initiating the Telnet_SSH session

  • Start Telnet_SSH by double-clicking on the Telnet_SSH icon from the XSecurePro Programs' folder (the Telnet Connect Host window should appear)

  • Choose SSH-1 (or SSH-2) in the Interface section

  • Enter the network name or IP address of the remote host you want to connect to

  • Change the default SSH port number if required

  • Click OK to establish connection with the remote host (the SSH Authentication window should appear)

  • Choose to Use plain password to log in

  • Specify the login information required for your host system: User name and Password in the Passphrase field

  • Click OK to log in to the remote host (the Telnet_SSH window should appear)

  • Run the following command lines:
    echo $DISPLAY
    echo $XAUTHORITY

Note: You must use the results in the command line you will execute with Startup below. The DisplayNumber in the first result is greater than zero.

2) Specifying required settings

  • Start XSettings by double-clicking on the XSettings icon from the XSecurePro Programs' folder (the XSettings window should appear)

  • Select Multiple+RemoteWM from the Window Mode List

  • Disable the Use XDMCP check box from the XDMCP section

  • Specify other required settings

  • Click OK to save your settings and exit XSettings

3) Initiating X-session

  • Start XServer by double-clicking on the XSession icon from the XSecurePro Programs' folder (the empty X-session window should appear)

4) Initiating the Startup session

  • Launch Startup by double-clicking on the Startup icon from the XSecurePro Programs' folder (or from the Run menu of XServer); the Startup window should appear

  • Choose REXEC in the Start Method section

  • Enter localhost as the network name or 127.0.0.1 as the IP address in the Host Name/IP Address field in the Login section

  • Enter your User Name in the User ID field (e.g., John)

  • Enter your Password required for your login to the remote system (e.g., Smith)

  • Select the line with the SSH connection to your remote host from the list box under the Use SSH Forwarding check box

  • Check the Use SSH Forwarding check box

  • Specify other required settings

  • In the Command field, enter the following line (depends on the remote shell used):
    export DISPLAY=Your_echo_DISPLAY; export XAUTHORITY=Your_echo_XAUTHORITY; /usr/bin/X11/xterm&

    Note: You must use the same values for Your_echo_DISPLAY and Your_echo_XAUTHORITY that the echo $DISPLAY and echo $XAUTHORITY commands show you in the Telnet_SSH window above (not 127.0.0.1:0).

  • Click the Execute button

    Startup will open REXEC to the remote host through the encrypted connection. 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).

Note: The path to xterm depends on the operating system's configuration used on the host (e.g., the path may be /usr/X11R6/bin/xterm).


Example of Initiating a Login Session by Using Telnet to Start xterm via SSH

First, make sure that:

  • your remote host is accessible from your PC

  • sshd-daemon (or sshd2-daemon) is running on your remote host

  • your PC is accessible from your remote host.

If OK, then you may initiate a login session by using Telnet_SSH via SSH like the following steps:

1) Specifying required settings

  • Start XSettings by double-clicking on the XSettings icon from the XSecurePro Programs' folder (the XSettings window should appear)

  • Select Multiple+RemoteWM from the Window Mode List

  • Disable the Use XDMCP check box from the XDMCP section

  • Specify other required settings

  • Click OK to save your settings and exit XSettings

2) Initiating X-session

  • Start XServer by double-clicking on the XSession icon from the XSecurePro Programs' folder (the empty X-session window should appear)

3) Initiating the Telnet_SSH session

  • Start Telnet_SSH by double-clicking on the Telnet_SSH icon from the XSecurePro Programs' folder (the Telnet Connect Host window should appear)

  • Choose SSH-1 (or SSH-2) in the Interface section

  • Enter the network name or IP address of the remote host you want to connect to

  • Change the default SSH port number if required

  • Click OK to establish connection with the remote host (the SSH Authentication window should appear)

  • Choose to Use plain password to log in

  • Specify the login information required for your host system: User name and Password in the Passphrase field

  • Click OK to log in to the remote host (the Telnet_SSH window should appear)

  • Run the following command line:
    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 X applications (e.g., xclock). XServer will work with the remote host through the encrypted connection.
