How can I use Xmanager on multiple Windows Terminal clients?

I've installed Xmanager evaluation version in a Windows Terminal Server machine. I have several Windows Terminal machines and the Xmanager can be launched only at one machine activated first.

Does Xmanager support Windows Terminal?

Thanks for any help.

Try the Xbrowser program in Xmanager v1.3.9

Xmanager v1.3.9 provides an Xbrowser program.
You can run multiple Xmanager using Xbrowser in Windows Terminal..
Be sure that Xbrowser only supports XDMCP connections.
I failed to run an X apps using Xstart on Windows Terminal.

To run Xapp using Xstart in Windows Terminal env.

You can make it using $PCADDR instead of $DISPLAY in the Xstart command line.

When you connect to a X desktop with Xbrowser, Xmanager allocates available `display number' & `screen number' and displays it on the title bar as following;

nath - Xmanager (Evaluation Only) [:1.0]

In this case, `1.0' is display number & screen number.

You can modify your Xstart command line to launch Xapp on that screen (Xmanager window) like following;

/usr/X11R6/xterm -ls -display $DISPLAY --> old command line
/usr/X11R6/xterm -ls -display $PCADDR:1.0 --> modified one

It works, but, that's not much easy to use. :(
Anyway, I hope it can help! Good luck!
