17.8 Using a server from more sessions

If one user is running XAS from more than one terminal window (on the same machine), and starts an instance of a graphics server this particular server is registered in the XAS environment for that particular session. Although communication channels may exist at an higher level, they can be accessed only in the given session.
To allow to use a server also from a session different from the one in which it was started, it is necessary to register it with command
registerserver [server instance

Of course one shall also xasset the plotter variable and beware of the other setting of the environment as described elsewhere.
