Documentation of ica options?

Asked by Erik Auerswald on 2010-12-02

On a terminal server I see quite a few ica processes running with command line options not documented in the man page:

/usr/bin/ica -rx11vs -noshm -nosel -nosetclipboard -rfbport 10108 -rx11vs -isdport 11108 -role other

What do the undocumented command line options mean? Where/how are these processes started?

/bin/sh /usr/bin/ica-launcher
 \_ avahi-publish-service italc $USERNAME _italc._tcp 10006 $HASH1 $HASH2 $DNSNAME
    \_ ica -noshm -isdport 11006 -ivsport 10006 -role other
       \_ /usr/bin/ica -rx11vs -noshm -nosel -nosetclipboard -rfbport 10006 -rx11vs -isdport 11006 -role other

So this is where it is started (the ica-launcher is started via xdg autostart), but why does it fork a process with the additional, undocumented command line options?

It looks like they have just wrapped up VNC.

Can you help with this problem?
