    68This feature refers to the ability to use an existing display server (an existing session) and use xpra to access it remotely.
     9
     10It is supported on all platforms including MS Windows and Mac OS X, but it is not optimized and will cause high CPU load on both the server and the client.

    12 On *nix, to expose your existing main display session (usually at {{{:0}}}) using a tcp server on port 10000:
     17If you have SSH access to the machine whose display you wish to shadow, simply run from your client:
     18{{{
     19xpra shadow ssh:HOST:DISPLAY
     20}}}
     21This will connect over SSH, start and xpra shadow server and connect to it.
     22
     23The shadow server will be stopped once you disconnect.
     24
     25The xpra shadow server will be accessible like any other xpra server through its unix domain socket. (ie: {{{xpra info ssh:HOST:DISPLAY}}})

     30== All Platforms ==

     32If remote start is not supported as above (as is the case on MS Windows and Mac OS X), or simply if you want to start the shadow server manually (and potentially configure more options).
     33
     34To expose your existing main display session (usually found at {{{:0}}} on *nix) using a TCP server on port 10000:
    1335{{{
    1436xpra shadow :0 --bind-tcp=0.0.0.0:10000

     38Notes:
     39* this does not cover [/wiki/Authentication] or [/wiki/Encryption]
     40* MS Windows and Mac OS X do not have X11 display names ({{{:0}}} in the example above), just choose any value you like
