Data Flow


This diagram tries to represent the major components and the data flows between them.


It is a very simplified version, and does not take into account:

  • proxy servers
  • shadow servers
  • hardware pixel encoders like nvenc
  • multiple simultaneous clients connected (#41)
  • clients that connect but do not display anything (xpra info, etc..)
  • window refresh, quality and speed tuning
  • sound forwarding and compression (both directions)
  • authentication
  • numerous events and optional data and metadata that flows in both direction
  • many features: clipboard, notification forwarding, bell, cursors, etc
