Reflection X Advantage installs several Sample Definitions by default. In many cases you can get connected without making any changes to these sample settings, then use the sample as a model for making additional connections.

If you see a message saying Unknown host: <hostname>, the host name you specified isn't reachable. Check your entry or try specifying a host IP address instead of using the host name.
If the X terminal desktop window opens and is followed by an XDMCP timeout message, XDMCP may not be configured on the host. On some networks, you can see a list of hosts that support XDMCP by changingto . Or, try configuring a desktop connection using an X Client command rather than using XDMCP.
