In computing, X-Win32 is a proprietary implementation of the X Window System for Microsoft Windows, produced by StarNet Communications. It is based on X11R7.4. The current version is 2012.

X- Win32 allows remote display of UNIX windows on Windows machines in a normal window alongside the other Windows applications

Features[edit]

  • Standard connection protocols - X-Win32 offers six standard connection protocols: ssh, telnet, rexec, rlogin, rsh, and XDMCP
  • LIVE Connection protocol - The LIVE Connection protocol, a proprietary protocol based on the NX technology, adds abilities typically not found in the traditional X11 protocol[1] - including the ability to suspend, resume, share and reconnect from any machine.
  • Window modes - Like other X servers for Microsoft Windows, X-Win32 has two window modes, Single and Multiple. Single window mode contains all X windows with one large visible root window. Multiple window mode allows the Microsoft Window Manager to manage the X client windows
  • Copy and paste - X-Win32 incorporates a clipboard manager which allows for dynamic copying and pasting of text from X clients to Windows applications and vice-versa. A screen-shot tool saves to a PNG file.
  • OpenGL support - X-Win32 uses the GLX extension which allows for OpenGL Support
