Do you guys remember the command to bring the CDE like session drawn into your windows xp desktop.
I already export my display variable to my PC..
I am running Reflection X, now I have a connection to my server, and the only thing I see is a terminal like window from reflcetion X. But I remember there was a command that I could type in this window to show me like a CDE session of the server.
Solved! Go to Solution.

1. Enable XDMCP at your Unix server. If you have GNOME installed then you can enable XDMCP from GDM configuration tool.
2. Install a Terminal Server client on your Windows machine. One is available at http://www.linuxtsc.org
On the other hand,if you just want any of your local (Unix) X apps to display on a Windows machine, you need to export your DISPLAY variable to point to that machine and install a X server application (http://www.cygwin.com). Make sure that you permit the Unix machine to use your Windows X server; by running xhost +

XDMCP is blocked by many VLAN network schemes, designed to reduce network connection.
Direct connection will have to be used if this is the case.

Also when you start ReflectX there is an direct and indirect query of the CDE/X-Server for you to select to connect to. If this is not what you're seeing then thats the issue in how your ReflectX session is configured.
