Getting there

The options are:


Compress protocol to remote X servers

Specify one of the following. (For additional information, see Configure Compression)

Dynamic (default)
Reflection X Advantage measures the bandwidth of data traveling from the protocol router to each remote X server and automatically compresses the protocol when the bandwidth is low enough to be likely to affect performance.

The bandwidth thresholds are:
< 1000Kbit/s = start compression
> 2000Kbit/s = stop compression

Compression is used for all connections to remote X servers. This option may be preferable where bandwidth is low and CPU and memory are not limiting.

Compression is never used. This option may improve performance if CPU or memory is limited and bandwidth is not low.


Encrypt protocol to remote X server displays using cipher

Specify what encryption is used for protocol sent from the protocol router to X server displays on other computers. (Note: The 'none' option is not available if you are running in FIPS mode.)

Note: This setting also controls what encryption is used for protocol sent between the protocol router and remote client connectors when the Remote Session Services connection method is used to launch clients.


Preferred encoding

Specify the character set encoding required by the window manager to correctly display client names in window title bars.  This is typically necessary when client names contain double-byte characters (such as Japanese Kanji).  This setting applies to remote window managers only, that is, with servers configured for Show clients on X terminal desktop.


Perform IP keep alives

When selected, the primary function of this setting is to instruct TCP/IP to check for terminated client sockets to Reflection X Advantage. If TCP/IP reports a lost connection, Reflection X Advantage terminates the client and its resources.

Unless you experience network disruptions, it is best to enable this setting so that Reflection X Advantage correctly receives updates from TCP/IP.


Trace Session

While troubleshooting a problem, Attachmate Technical Support may request that you obtain one or more traces of program actions. After receiving your trace file, Technical Support can replay the trace to replicate the problem. Enable this setting to create a trace file. This setting takes effect the next time you launch this session and remains in effect until you clear the setting.


Configure for replay

Do not enable this setting; it is for use by Attachmate technical support when replaying a trace.
