ahhh where do I find that? I could only find 3.0 docs on ltsp.org !?!
isn't that a little old now?

Works great when using
	SSH_HOST =x.x.x.x
	SCREEN_xx = ssh
	SCREEN_yy = ssh

but when connecting to multible servers

	SSH_HOST =x.x.x.x
	SCREEN_xx = ssh x.x.x.x
	SCREEN_yy = ssh y.y.y.y

I can only login as root, no matter what I enter as usename!

Sounds like a nice and simple way to flip a terminal int a different

is it possible to use a combination of both?

Like this:
	SCREEN_01 = startx
	SCREEN_02 = phone
	# I'm thinging of making all terminal act as VoIP-phones
LIKE = kids
	x_MODE_0 = 800x600 60Hz
LIKE = kids
	x_MODE_0 = 800x600 75Hz
LIKE = kids
	x_MODE_0 = 1024x768 75Hz
