5.1 X Manager Basic Session

X Manager (the standalone session manager) is installed by default. When you run sessions from X Manager, all processes initially run on the X Manager workstation, data flows directly between the X Manager and the X client host, and the server display is created on the X Manager. (By sharing your session, you may create additional X server displays on remote computers.)

NOTE:All definitions used by the standalone X Manager are stored in the Reflection X Advantage database on the X Manager workstation.

  1. When you start X Manager, it retrieves session settings from the database on your workstation.

  2. When you launch a session, a client connector and protocol router are created on your workstation, and X client applications connect to the client connector.

  3. The X server display is created on your workstation, and all X protocol passes between the two computers.
