Getting Started with X Manager for Domains

To configure public client and session definitions, we’ll start with X Manager for Domains. Because you’ve already seen the standalone X Manager, this will be familiar territory.

To start X Manager for Domains and create a client definition

  1. From Computer 1 (the computer on which you installed all features), start X Manager for Domains.

    Start > All Programs > Attachmate Reflection > X Manager for Domains - Reflection X Advantage

  2. Log on using the credentials of your administrator account. (If you're testing with Windows authentication, use your own Windows name and password. If you configured Reflection X Internal authentication, use the user name and password you set for the administrator account.) In the Domain field, enter your computer name.
  3. In the Import Migrated Settings and Templates dialog box, select the settings you want to import.
  4. Create and test an X client definition. The procedures are the same as for the Standalone client. See Starting an X Client. For this connection, don't enter any value for User name in the client definition. In the next exercise you'll be sharing this session with other users. Leaving User name blank means that each user will be prompted to enter his or her own user name.
  5. Log off the X client, or end the session by selecting the running session and clicking the red stop session button, stop_notext.png, in the X Manager for Domains toolbar.

In the next procedure, you'll learn how to use the Administrative Console to share this client definition with other users.

Note: You can also create new clients using the Administrative Console. However, using X Manager for Domains is usually preferable because it lets you test the connection before you make your settings public.
