This section describes the dialogs for creating, changing, launching, and migrating a session. For information about accessing the Configuration window, see Start X-Config.
Following are descriptions of the dialogs for handling sessions, which are accessed through the Configuration window.
A session can be either shared (Shared Sessions) or private (My Session). Selecting a session type is required when creating a new session.
The current sessions can be viewed by opening the menu (click +). This allows you to edit, launch, or remove the selected session.
To create a new session, the type of session is selected (Share Sessions or My Session), and then the configuration method (Manual or Wizard).
The Manual dialog allows you to configure all available parameters.
The Wizard dialog provides an easy user interface, and many of the necessary parameters are set as default values. Not all parameters are available through the Wizard. If necessary, those parameters can be configured using Edit.
When desired, an existing session can be selected and edited. This may be necessary in the event of a connection failure, or having to change some parameters.
Edit allows the same detail of configuration as Manual configuration.
When no longer needed, a selected session can be removed.
Sessions can be saved in any directory on your computer. Use this button to add a new location of the session. If you want to share your sessions simply add new sessions to a centralized location that all users can access.
For easy access, frequently used sessions can be saved on the desktop. For more information, see Shortcut Sessions.
To connect to a remote host, a session can be launched.
When a session is launched, the status of establishing connection is displayed. See About Launch Sessions.
Global Password Updating added. This lets you update the passwords for all your sessions, for all sessions in a specific folder, or selected sessions on a particular host. Only users with administrator privileges can globally update passwords.
