    v36 v37  
    5555* if only one session exists for this user, you can connect via the proxy with:
    5656{{{
    57 xpra attach tcp://:foo@PROXYHOST:14501/
     57xpra attach tcp://foo:bar@PROXYHOST:14501/
    5858}}}
    5959
    6060If there is more than one existing session accessible for this user, the client also needs to specify which display it wishes to connect to using the extended attach syntax: "{{{tcp/USERNAME:PASSWORD@SERVER:PORT/DISPLAY}}}":
    6161{{{
    62 xpra attach tcp://:foo@PROXYHOST:14501/100
     62xpra attach tcp://foo:bar@PROXYHOST:14501/100
    6363}}}
    6464[[BR]]
     
    6666Notes:
    6767* this example uses tcp, but the proxy works equally well with all other transports ({{{ssl}}}, {{{wss}}} etc)
     68* the username "foo" and password "bar" can be replaced with anything since the {{{allow}}} authentication module does not check the credentials
    6869* if you run this command as root, all the user sessions will be exposed!
    6970* if you run it a normal user, only this user's session will be exposed
    70 * once authenticated, the proxy server spawns a new process and no longer runs as root
     71* when running the proxy server as root, once authenticated, the proxy server spawns a new process and no longer runs as root
    7172* the display number chosen for the proxy server is only used for identifying the proxy server and interacting with it using the regular tools ("{{{xpra info}}}", etc)
    72 * to use ports lower than 1024 either use {{{--min-port}}} and run as root and or see [https://superuser.com/questions/710253/ allow non-root process to bind to port 80 and 443]
     73* to use ports lower than 1024 either use {{{--min-port}}} and run as root or see [https://superuser.com/questions/710253/ allow non-root process to bind to port 80 and 443]
