Question multi-user html5

Reported by: peter0914 Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: major Milestone: 4.0
Component: html5 Version: 3.0.x
Keywords: Cc:


I have the following use case:

  • Multiple users (clients) shall be able to run a specific program P on a remote server
  • Each user gets its own instance of P (so P is started multiple times on the server)
  • The users connect via web-browser (html5) with their username and password

At the moment I solved it by creating separate linux user accounts and launching multiple instances of xpra-html5 under each of these accounts on different display and tcp (wss) ports. However I wonder if there is a better option, because I have some stability problems with the X-servers and maybe I am using xpra the wrong way.

My questions are:

  1. Is my current solution the preferred one in this situation?
  2. Might the xpra proxy be useful to me?
  3. How could multiple user logins/passwords be handled by a single xpra instance?

PS: Im using the latest ppa version. Also I could not find a proper type for this ticket, please change it to something else.

Sorry I think wiki/ProxyServer answers all my questions.
