Session Sharing Settings

Connection URL

(Standalone mode only) The URL that can be used by other Reflection X servers to join a shared session.

If you are the creator of the session, click Share to share the session and generate a connection URL. Send the connection URL to those who you want to join the session. When users start X Manager and go to Action > Join, they can join the shared session by providing the connection URL.

Choose to generate a connection URL that other X Manager users can use to join this session.

Choose to stop sharing the current session and disconnect external users that joined it.

Copy URL
Choose to copy the Connection URL to the clipboard so that it can be distributed to other users via email.


  • These options can be disabled from the General tab using Disable sharing.
  • These options are not available if the running session is configured to use Remote Session Services.



Allowed Users

(Domain mode only) All users allowed to join the session are listed here.

If you are the creator of the session, you can click the plus sign (+) to add users. When allowed users start the X Manager and log onto the domain, they can join the session listed under Offered Sessions.


Allow users to take control of session

If you are the creator of the session, while the session is running you can select this option to allow users to take control of a session they have joined.

  • In Standalone mode, this option applies to all users who join the session using the session's Connection URL.
  • In Domain mode, this option applies to all Allowed Users.

Client Connectors


The client connectors for a session accept incoming connection requests from X clients and forward X protocol requests received from the X client to the session.



The name of the computer on which the client connector is running.


Listening IP/Display

The network address and display number of the X session to which the client connector belongs. A single client connector might have more than one listening IP/display pair if more than one network card is present.

X clients locate an X session by this pair of values. This is done by setting the DISPLAY environment variable (or the X client command line option "-display") to <network address>:<display number>.


X Client Count

The number of X clients connected to this client connector.

X Servers

Shows details about the X servers connected to this session.



The computer on which this X server is running.



The user running this X server.



Shows whether protocol is compressed between this server and the session's protocol router. If protocol is compressed, or if this is a headless server, this column also displays additional statistics about the data exchange. For details, see Session Statistics.


Input Allowed

Mouse and keyboard input. If user input is enabled for this X server, the status is Yes. Input is allowed from only one X server at a time.



Displays the latency (in milliseconds) of the connection between the computer running this server and the computer running the session's protocol router.

If the server is running locally, this column shows "N/A".
