To whom it may concern,I am new to Xpra. From the web page it indicates that Xpra is able to forward full desktops, from X11 servers, MS Windows, or Mac OS X. 

I was able to run the command below to start a process on Linux and connect to it from other client desktops:xpra start :100 --start-child=xterm

On Windows and MacOS, I attempted to run a similar command but encountered the following error:

xpra initialization error:
 invalid mode 'start'

The commands I tried were:

/c/'Program Files (x86)'/Xpra_cmd start :100 --start-child=cmd (on Windows)

/Applications/Xpra.app/Contents/MacOS/Xpra start :100 --start-child='open Terminal .' (on MacOS)

Are Windows and MacOS supported as a remote server or am I not using it correctly? Please kindly advise.
