SYNOPSIS

kx [-l username] [-k] [-d] [-t] [-p port] [-P] host

DESCRIPTION

The kx program forwards an X connection from a remote client to a local screen through an authenticated and encrypted stream. Options supported by kx:
-l Log in on the remote the host as user username.
-k Do not enable keep-alives on the TCP connections.
-d Do not fork. This is mainly useful for debugging.
-t Listen not only on a UNIX-domain socket but on a TCP socket as well.
-p Use the port port.
-P Force passive mode.

This program is used by rxtelnet and rxterm and you should not need to run it directly.

It connects to a kxd on the host host and then will relay the traffic from the remote X clients to the local server. When started, it prints the display and Xauthority-file to be used on host host and then goes to the background, waiting for connections from the remote kxd.
