    Overview - The OIT Cywin RDX Package Ver. 1.0 download consists of minimal packages that's required to connect to an remote *nix XServer. A launcher and chooser script is included to simplify a remote connection with a *nix server.

    Install - The package was made and tested on Windows XP operating systems. Simply download the package and double-click to install.

    Usage - Two shortcuts located on the Desktop and two in the start/programs/accessories/communication were conveniently made, simply click or double-click the RDX icon, then enter in the name or ip address of the *nix computer to connect to. To use the RDX Launcher, enter in the computer name or ip address, change to query and all other options are optional except anything under the fonts' tab.
