Overall System Status:
There are three basic components to configuring ReflectionX. The first two are for a typical installation.
The third component is for an additional configuration (OpenGL, fontservers, etc.).
If you are running ReflectionX version 10 or later, start up ReflectionX. In the X Manager window under Client connection settings, select OPENSSH as the method, then enter the hostname of the computer you want to connect to and your username.
If you are running ReflectionX version 9 or earlier, follow the steps below to set up for SSH.
Select Window Manager under the Settings tab.
Make sure the Microsoft Windows desktop and Reflection Window Manager radio buttons are selected.
Under the Settings tab, select Fonts.
In the box under Subdirectories and font servers, enter the names of your font servers in the format tcp/(name of font server):7100. For example, if you are using mathematica, you will need to add rcfontserv, so enter tcp/rcfontserv:7100 (at the end of the text box).
OpenGL rendering is turned on by default in ReflectionX.
If you are getting OpenGL errors, you can check to see if OpenGL support has been disabled. To do this, select Server under the Settings tab.
Make sure that Enable GLX Extension has been checked:
ReflectionX can use two different window managers:
For many applications, you will not have any problems, but you may experience some problems with this window manager and may prefer to use the Reflection Window Manager. For example, some java applications may take away your window manager, leaving you with undecorated windows on the screen that you cannot move or easily close.
