Share a Session

Using the Reflection X Advantage sharing feature, you can allow other users to join an X session that you have started. If you are operating Reflection X Advantage in Domain mode, from X Manager for Domains you can share running sessions with other users that log onto the domain. For those operating in Standalone mode, X Manager supports peer-to-peer sharing by generating a connection URL that allows other users to connect to your running session.

Note: Reflection X Advantage must be enabled for FIPS to join a peer-to-peer session started in FIPS mode.

To share a session from X Manager for Domains

  1. From the Session Definitions list, select the running session that you want to share.

    Statistics for the session are displayed to the right.

  2. From the Allowed Users list on the right, click the plus sign (+).

    The Share with Users dialog box appears, displaying a list of the users that belong to the domain. It is not necessary for these users to be logged into the domain to be included on this list.

  3. Select the user(s) with whom you want to share the session, and then click OK.

    When a user in this list opens X Manager and logs into the Reflection X domain, the session is listed under Offered Sessions.

  4. (Optional) Select Allow users to take control of session to provide session users with the ability to control the session.

Note: To end a user's access to a shared session from X Manager for Domains, remove the user from the list of allowed users. This terminates that user's session.

To share a session from X Manager (standalone)

  1. From the Session Definitions list, select the running session that you want to share.

    Statistics for the session are displayed to the right.

  2. In the Session Status section on the right, to share the session and generate a connection URL, click Share.
  3. Send the connection URL to whoever you want to join the session. (Copy URL adds the URL to the clipboard.)

    When invited users start X Manager and go to Action > Join, they can join the shared session by providing the connection URL.

  4. (Optional) Select Allow users to take control of session to provide session users with the ability to control the session.

Note: To end access to a shared session from X Manager, click Unshare. This terminates all shared sessions.
