    6 This can be very useful for hosts that have a limited number of publicly accessible ports, or for clients accessing servers through firewalls with outbound port filtering.

     9Depending on the [/wiki/Authentication Authentication] module configured, the proxy server can expose:
     10* all local xpra sessions after user authentication
     11* a custom list of sessions configured through the "file-auth" mechanism
     12
     13To start the proxy server, simply run:
     14{{{
     15xpra proxy :20 --auth=sys --bind-tcp=0.0.0.0:443
     16}}}
     17Note: if you run this command as root, all the user sessions will be exposed. If you run it a normal user, only this user's session will be exposed.
     18Once authenticated, the proxy server spawns a new process and no longer runs as root.
