How to edit a command line to start XManager connecting to XWindows on Linux?

 
Hi Support,

I hope to use command line to initialize a XManager Windows which is connecting to XWindows on Linux.

The command line contains target host information about IPAddress, userName, password, port.

After the command Line is executed, the XBrowser has been connect to target linux in XWindows GUI.

Thanks,

Program Ver. : Xmanager 3.0
Connect Method : Other

Here are some command line options you can use. However, you cannot pass username and password. This is not supported by X11 protocol.

Xmanager supports command line options to interface with other user applications. When you run Xmanager directly, it does not read an Xstart or Xbrowser session and you should specify the connection method and display number as command line options.

Xmanager command line usage:

Xmanager [-query hostname|-broadcast|-indirect hostname] [:digit]

Some examples are listed below.

Xmanager
Runs as a passive mode with the default Xstart profile. The display number is 0 by default; if it is not available, another number is allocated automatically.

Xmanager :1
Runs as a passive mode with the default Xstart profile. The display number is 1; if it is not available, Xmanager aborts.

Xmanager –query host
Connects to the host with the XDMCP query method. It uses the default XDMCP profile. The display number is 0 by default; if it is not available, another number is allocated automatically.

Xmanager –query host :2
Connects to the host with the XDMCP query method. It uses the default XDMCP profile. The display number is 2; if it is not available, Xmanager aborts.

Xmanager –broadcast
Sends an XDMCP broadcast message to the local network and displays all available XDMCP hosts in a Chooser dialog box. It uses the default XDMCP profile. The display number is 0 by default; if it is not available, another number is allocated automatically.

Xmanager –indirect host
Connects to the host with the XDMCP indirect method. The remote host opens a chooser window through Xmanager. It uses the default XDMCP profile. The display number is 0 by default; if it is not available, another number is allocated automatically.
