Running scologin with the Xservers file
You can use the /usr/lib/X11/scologin/Xservers file
to configure scologin management of displays
on your local system or on X servers that do not
support XDMCP. You can also use this
approach if you do not want to reconfigure the
SCO X server, as described in
``Running scologin with XDMCP''.
To configure scologin to manage multiple displays
using the Xservers file,
use the following procedure.
You must be logged onto the system as root.
The scologin display manager should now be running
on all of the displays you configured.
Use the scologin administration script to stop scologin,
if it is currently running on your system.
On the host machine where you want to run scologin,
add the servers you want to manage to the /usr/lib/X11/scologin/Xservers file.
Use the following format when making entries in this file:
display_name [display_class] display_type [startup_command]
When you are finished, save and exit the file.
To manage a remote display, you must provide access to the server.
On the system where the display is to be managed, edit
the /etc/Xn.hosts file,
where n represents the display number you want to use
on the remote machine, and add the name of the machine
on which scologin will be running.
When managing a remote display, you must start the X server
on that display before scologin can gain control.
On the actual screen you want managed by scologin, run the X server:
On a local system, this step is unnecessary because
scologin automatically starts the X server.
Returning to the scologin host machine,
use the scologin administration script to restart scologin,
so it reads its configuration files, including Xservers:
