Advanced Rexec Settings

Getting there

The options are:

Use alternate xauth command

Select this option to configure an alternate xauth command. The xauth command affects sessions in which Network Security > User-based authorization is enabled.

Xauth command

Specify an alternate command to place an MIT cookie in the .XAuthority file in the user's home directory.

Macros are supported. For example, in the following command, %IP#% provides the IP address and display number, and %C% specifies MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 authorization and provides the required hex encoded authorization data.

xauth add %IP#% %C%

This option is available only when Use alternate xauth command is selected.
