Frequently Asked Questions
Hi, we use DHCP at our site... Does your software support this? I'm interested because of setting the DISPLAY variable. We don't have fixed IP addresses for clients, therefore I don't host file the names or DNS them.

If any of users connects with LAN via DHCP, that means they don't have a fixed IP address. However in this case you can run X-client by using the "Startup" utility without modifying the .su file every time:

The XStartup facility (RSH/REXEC) understands the following macrosubstitutions:
- $(LOCALDISPLAY) - f.example:"/usr/local/X11/bin/xterm -d $(LOCALDISPLAY)";
- $(LOCALHOST) - f.example:"/usr/local/X11/bin/xterm -d $(LOCALHOST):0";
- $(LOCALIP) - f.example:"/usr/local/X11/bin/xterm -d $(LOCALIP):0";

In this case, you must use $(LOCALIP) macrosubstitution.
