You can connect to a Photon session from a Windows or QNX Neutrino host machine and run your Photon program as if you were sitting in front of the target machine. Photon appears in a phindows window on your Windows host or in a phditto window on your QNX Neutrino host.
The remote Photon session runs independently of your host. For example, the clipboards don't interact, and you can't drag-and-drop files between the two machines. The phindows and phditto utilities transmit your mouse and keyboard input to Photon and show the resulting state of your Photon session as a bitmap on your host machine.
Before you run a remote Photon session on a Windows host, you must first prepare your target machine. For details, see the Connecting with Phindows section in the Preparing Your Target chapter.
