This section explains how to connect to a remote UNIX/Linux host and how to bring a remote X application or full remote desktop to your Windows desktop.

Xmanager provides two basic methods to access remote UNIX/Linux hosts: Xbrowser and Xstart. With Xbrowser, you can bring a full remote desktop to your Windows desktop through XDMCP (X Display Manager Control Protocol) and it is much easier for most users. With Xstart, you can get a single remote X application such as xterm and it is faster and simpler than XDMCP connection.

Once you have installed Xmanager successfully, you will be able to find Xstart and Xbrowser programs in the Xmanager folder on the desktop.
