Summary:  X Persistent Remote Applications
Xpra is 'screen for X': it allows you to run X programs,
usually on a remote host, direct their display to your local machine,
and then to disconnect from these programs and reconnect
from the same or another machine, without losing any state.
It gives you remote access to individual applications.
Xpra is "rootless" or "seamless": programs you run under
it show up on your desktop as regular programs, managed by your regular window manager.
Sessions can be accessed over SSH, or password protected over plain TCP sockets.
Xpra is usable over reasonably slow links and does its best to adapt
to changing network bandwidth limits. (see also adaptive JPEG mode)
Xpra is open-source (GPLv2+), multi-platform and multi-language,
with current clients written in Python and Java.

On the machine which will export the application (xterm in this example):
> xpra start :100 --start-child=xterm

We can then attach to this session from the same machine, with:
> xpra attach :100

If connecting from a remote machine, you would use something like (or you can also use the GUI):
> xpra attach ssh:serverhostname:100
