System Service


Starting with version 1.0, the posix installations should have installed a system service which allows you to access all your sessions through a single authenticated port.

This service is often referred to as the "system wide proxy server".


Your init system should start the service on xpra's default port (14500).

The packages should have installed firewall rules to allow network connections to this port.

This service is also used for registering server instances with logind.
