Xbrowser helps you to find UNIX/Linux hosts on your network and connect to a host using XDMCP protocol.
To use Xbrowser, the remote Unix host should be configured to allow XDMCP service for remote X terminals. Usually one of dtlogin, kdm, gdm or xdm should be running on the host. For more information about configuring XDMCP service on the Unix host, please refer to the manual of your Unix server.
Note: Xbrowser finds all UNIX/Linux hosts on your local network automatically. If UNIX/Linux host that you wish to access is in different network with the one of user's PC, open Options dialog box and register IP address or Broadcast address of the host, then try it again. If your Unix host is not found on the Xbrowser window, the host is not ready to serve XDMCP connections.
Note: If you are not able to get a graphic login window, there may be a firewall between your PC and the remote host.
Note: If the remote desktop does not open after entering username and password, there may be an error in your login shell scripts.
