Get the source.
If you're using HP-UX and lack the Xau library, go to contrib/Xau (it contains sources from X11R5), and compile with "xmkmf -a; make EXTRA_INCLUDES=-I.".
Change to the src/ directory, choose the appropriate Makefile.* (e.g. copy or link it to Makefile) and make.
Install jlock, jreq, jterm and jws in your $PATH.
Set the appropriate environment variables in your ".xsession".
Create JWS-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 entries for `hostname`:0 and localhost:0 in your ".xsession" (16 bytes is probably a good size). These bytes should be random and hard to guess for an attacker. Look at the way your system creates MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 entries for a start. An entry for `hostname`/unix:0 is not required.
Start jws from your ".xsession". A "-<N>" parameter may be specified which determines how many windows are visible simultaneously ("-2" is default).
