    2626As per the [https://xpra.org/#get_started home page "get started"] instructions, this is how xpra is most often used. This will start an {{{xterm}}} (or any graphical application you want) on {{{SERVERHOSTNAME}}} and forward it to your desktop:
    2727{{{
    28 xpra start ssh/SERVERUSERNAME@SERVERHOSTNAME --start-child=xterm
     28xpra start ssh://SERVERUSERNAME@SERVERHOSTNAME/ --start-child=xterm
    2929}}}
    3030
     
    3838* then from the client, just connect to this xpra instance:
    3939{{{
    40 xpra attach ssh/SERVERUSERNAME@SERVERHOST/100
     40xpra attach ssh://SERVERUSERNAME@SERVERHOST/100
    4141}}}
    4242(replace {{{SERVERHOST}}} with the hostname or IP of the server)
     
    6464Then, assuming that the port you have chosen ({{{10000}}} in the example above) is allowed through the firewall (if any), you can connect from the client using:
    6565{{{
    66 xpra attach tcp:SERVERHOST:10000
     66xpra attach tcp://SERVERHOST:10000/
    6767}}}
    6868
     
    9191This allows you to access an existing desktop remotely. Simply:
    9292{{{
    93 xpra shadow ssh:SERVERHOST
     93xpra shadow ssh://SERVERHOST/
    9494}}}
    9595[[BR]]
     
    119119To forward a printer to another machine, simply start a remote session without starting an application, and ensure printer forwarding is enabled or force enable it on the command line:
    120120{{{
    121 xpra shadow --no-windows --no-speaker --no-cursors ssh:SERVERHOST --printing=yes
     121xpra shadow --no-windows --no-speaker --no-cursors ssh://SERVERHOST/ --printing=yes
    122122}}}
