UAB has a site license with StarNet for their FastX and x-win32 products. Both products are available at no cost to UAB faculty/staff.
- FastX is a simple and affordable PC X server solution. FastX allows you to connect over the Internet and work with even the most demanding remote hosted Linux and Unix applications at LAN speed. FastX sessions are persistent (you can reconnect after a network interruption) and secure.
- X-Win32 is the most versatile PC X Server for displaying remote Unix and Linux desktops and individual X applications. X-Win32 is widely used in demanding engineering design sectors such as defense/aerospace, molecular biology, and IC design with applications like Cadence Virtuoso. X-Win32 remains the simplest X Windows terminal emulator for 32- and 64-bit Windows PCs.
