Domain and Standalone Operating Modes
Reflection X can be operated in either "Standalone" or "Domain" mode.
Standalone mode is provided by a single applicationX Manager, which is installed by default. In this mode you use one application, X Manager to access X hosts and clients, configure and share sessions, and monitor session status all from your own desktop.
Running Reflection X in Domain mode provides access to all the features in standalone mode, and also provides access to additional domain services. Domain administrators run the X Administrative Console to configure and manage Reflection X domains, and to handle load balancing, optimizing performance for a group of X sessions. Domain users run X Manager for Domains to access X hosts and clients. These applications connect to a central domain controller, which runs the Reflection X service and stores session definitions in a shared database. As an authorized domain user, you can start, join, leave, and share a running X session. You can use all public definitions created by administrators, as well as create private definitions available only to you. For information on setting up and configuring a Reflection X domain, see Reflection X Domain Administration.
