X-Win32

X-Win32 from Starnet Communications is the software which C&CZ recommends to run X11 software on your MS Windows PC, simply put: to make an X-terminal of your PC. Because the latest versions of X-Win32 (See also install drive) have SSH built in, it is no longer difficult to create a secure X-Windows connection.

According to the license agreement, anybody from the science faculty is allowed to copy and install X-Win32. X-Win32 can be installed on any PC, as long as the IP number starts with 131.174 or the server to which one connects has an IP_number that starts with 131.174. This implies that home use is possible.

Settings and usage

After X-Win32 has been installed, X-Win32 has to be configured by running X-Config (click Start -> Programs -> X-Win32 9.0 -> X-Config). Some examples:

  • To open a single xterm window on a loginserver like solo (for employees), solost (for students) or lilo (in this case enter the command /usr/bin/xterm because this is a Linux machine, for employees and students) tunneled through a secure channel. In the video (ip smart) is selected to be able to use X-Win32 at home. [Video show/hide]
     Sessions -> Manual...
     Connect Method: SSH
     Session name: solo
     Host name: solo.science.ru.nl (solost.science.ru.nl)
     Command: /usr/local/X11/bin/xterm
     Session Flags: Auto Start
     Window Mode: Default
     Display -> Select (ip smart)
  • To mimic an X-terminal with a secure connection to a loginserver: [Video show/hide]
    'Loginserver' must be replaced by:
    • for employees: solo.science.ru.nl
    • for students: solost.science.ru.nl
    • for administrative users: bb.dbf.kun.nl
     Sessions -> Manual...
     Connect Method: SSH
     Session name: 'Loginserver'
     Host name: 'Loginserver'
