The best place for info and help I've found is the eXceed users mail list.

This list is run by Hummingbird but has a very large set of experts watching who will help you.

Here is the stuff I got when a joined:-
===============================================================
     Welcome to Hummingbird Communications' eXceedusers mailing list!

     The character and content of this list are primarily up to you,
the subscribers.  Here are some information on the mailing list:

1)  To post to the mailing list send mail to exceedusers@hummingbird.com

2)  Only these lines should be sent to exceedusers-request@hummingbird.com
             a)  requests for subscriptions
             b)  requests to discontinue subscriptions
             c)  requests for help

    Do not include a Subject.  Put your request in the message body in
    the form:

        subscribe
        unsubscribe
        help

   Note:  Use only one request per message.  Multiple subscribes or
   unsubscribes in a single request are allowed, but not both subscribe
   and unsubscribe in the same request.

3)  The digest version of the mailing list is available.  You can subscribe
    to the digest only mailing list by sending email (similar to the above) to
    exceedusers-digest-request@hummingbird.com.  You can expect digested
    messages being sent out every month.

   Note:  This is a new feature and is still undergoing extensive testing.

4)  Topics should stay around or near issues about eXceed.  Discussion about
    X, UNIX, Windows, Windows NT, and OS/2 etc. are appropriate if
    related to eXceed, eXtend, eXpress.  A wide latitude of discussion
    is expected.

     The response to eXceed Users group has been tremendous and we are
pleased to continue to provide this service for eXceed users to
share ideas and experiences.

Here is a basic rundown.

In Configuration, set the protocols and etc..

Under Window (I think) select XDMP Query option and single window mode.
 Configure the host and connect. This will bring up the login window and place the
entire window manager on your desktop. This is all from memory but find these items
and that is mostly what you need to configure. The other method of running xterm's and
select programs is overly complicated and overall less efficient. I brink up my entire
CDE desktop thru Exceed with no problerms.

Good Luck,

If you want a more detailed instruction set, reply back and I will post exact info at work
where I have exceed at my fingertips.

Oh yea, add your host and IP addresses in a file called XDCMP.txt (or something like that)

It is it exceednt\users

This file works similiar to winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
