Here is how we did it.
We created our local web server and, in the root, we placed a file named
x2gobase.html with the following contents:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<title>SimplicITy Data Service</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
<p>This website will offer you a plugin named "x2goplugin" which
will enable you to start or reconnect to your SimplicITy desktop.</br>
For more information about SimplicITy and other services to simplify
your office, please visit <a
For more information about X2Go, please visit <a
As you can see, this is just slightly customized to our needs - very
simple to adapt.
We then created subdirectories for each user. In each subdirectory, we
created a link to the x2gobase.html named index.html. In the same user
subdirectory, we created a file named config.x2go with contents similar
to the following:
session=SimplicITy (our utility office product name)
user=<we leave this blank as an extra security precaution>
sshport=443(or whatever port the user is using)
It has worked well for us other than the few bugs we reported. Good
luck - John
