You can use a workstation running Receiver as a server and redirect the output to another X11-capable device. You may want to do this to deliver Microsoft Windows applications to X terminals or to UNIX workstations for which Receiver is not available. Note that the Receiver software is available for many X devices, and installing the software on these devices is the preferred solution in these cases. Running the Receiver in this way, as an ICA-to-X proxy, is also referred to as server-side ICA.
When you run Receiver, you can think of it as an ICA-to-X11 converter that directs the X11 output to your local Linux desktop. However, you can redirect the output to another X11 display. This means that you can run multiple copies of Receiver simultaneously on one system with each sending its output to a different device.
To set up this type of system, you need a Linux server to act as the ICA-to-X11 proxy:
Applications are supplied to the final device using X11, using the capabilities of the ICA protocol. By default, you can use drive mapping only to access the drives on the proxy. This is not a problem if you are using X terminals (which usually do not have local drives). If you are delivering applications to other UNIX workstations, you can either:
Some features are not passed to the final device:
setenv DISPLAY <local:0>
