X Manager - Initial Startup

This procedure describes what you see the first time you run the standalone X Manager. See X Manager for Domains - Initial Startup if you run in domain mode.

Before you begin

  • Install Reflection X Advantage using defaults. (This includes the X Manager and Templates features).

To start X Manager and import templates and migrated settings

  1. Start X Manager. (On Windows, go to Start > All Programs > Attachmate Reflection > X Manager.)

    The first time you run X Manager, the Import Migrated Settings and Templates dialog box opens. This dialog box includes a list of sample connection settings for different host types. Migrated settings are also listed if you are running on a system with local settings used by earlier Reflection X products (typically version13 or 14), or Hummingbird Exceed. (This dialog box does not open if you are upgrading from an earlier version of Reflection X Advantage. It is also possible to import templates manually.)

  2. Do one of the following:
    • Select the settings you want to import and click Import. This imports the selected settings plus a set of default sample definitions.
    • Click Cancel. When you cancel, Reflection X Advantage does not import any of the listed settings, but does import the default sample definitions.
