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. Until one has added the "licentie-kode" from the install-directory as a floating network license, a session will terminate after 30 minutes.

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 terminal window on a loginserver like lilo or stitch tunneled through a secure channel enter the command /usr/bin/konsole.

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: lilo
     Host name: lilo.science.ru.nl (or stitch.science.ru.nl)
     Command: /usr/bin/konsole
     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/students: lilo.science.ru.nl (or stitch.science.ru.nl)
    • for administrative users: bb.dbf.kun.nl
     Sessions -> Manual...
     Connect Method: SSH
     Session name: 'Loginserver'
     Host name: 'Loginserver'
     Command: /usr/local/X11/etc/xinitrc
     Session Flags: Auto Start
     Window Mode: Switch to single
  • To start an FNWI administrative application like aos tunneled through a secure channel: [Video show/hide]
     Sessions -> Manual...
     Connect Method: SSH
     Session name: aos
     Host name: lilo.science.ru.nl
     Command: /usr/local/bin/aos
     Session Flags: Auto Start
     Window Mode: Default
