How to start a passive Xserver on a specific display number?

 
I am using Xmanager 2.0.
When I start XServer by click the the shortcut of
"Xmanager-passive", it chooses display number "0".

I've tried some methods.I save an xsession file
in Xbrower to start xmanager on a specific display
number. But this is not passive.

I can see it can be started to broadcast mode
by "xmanager -broadcast". Can I start xmanager by
giving it an argument like broadcasting to run
on a specific number? Or is there any direct and
convinient way to do it??

Thank you.

Please follow the procedure below to manually assign a display number to a passive session.
1. Start Xbrowser.
2. In the File menu, point to New and click Start New Session Wizard.
3. Select Passive from the Session Type dialog box, and then click Next.
4. Clear the Allocate Display Number Automatically option.
5. In the Display Number box, enter an appropriate display number.

You can also copy the Xmanager - Passive short-cut icon and assign a new display number:

1. Right-click on the Xmanager - Passive icon.
2. Click Properties.
3. Click the Short-cut tab.
4. In the Target box, append ":1" to the Xmanager.exe command.
