hi there
20:51
totally new here
20:52|Paradox| has left IRC (|Paradox|!iamparadox@c-71-56-171-154.hsd1.va.comcast.net, Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
20:52
<dirkJ>
was searching for an alternative to M$ TS
20:52|Paradox| has joined IRC (|Paradox|!iamparadox@c-71-56-171-154.hsd1.va.comcast.net)
20:52
<dirkJ>
found this and sounds good
20:52
question is: ...
20:53
... I have a M$ 2008 Server running and providing a M$ Software, not available for LINUX
20:53
can I provide this M$ Softa
20:54
*Software by using this ltsp as a Terminal Server?
20:54
<alkisg>
LTSP allows you to boot your clients and run xfreerdp on them, which can then connect to your 2008 server
20:54
So first try xfreerdp, and if it suits your needs, ltsp can help you boot your clients to that
20:55
<dirkJ>
my clients are thin clients called 10zig, running a knd of linux
20:56
www.10zig.com
20:58
<alkisg>
If you want to boot them from local disk, you don't need ltsp
20:58
ltsp is for net-booting clients
20:59
<dirkJ>
oh then I missunderstood, thanks for clarifying
21:00
<alkisg>
I.e. you would have a linux server running ltsp, and your clients would boot over the network, and run xfreerdp, and connect to your 2008 server
21:00
It's easier to maintain things that way
21:03
<dirkJ>
I thought it is an alternative to M$ Terminal Server, means when I have a M$ Application running on a Server 2008, then my ltsp would be able to act as a Terminal Server and passthrough the M$ Application from that 2008 Server, so that a plenty of user can make use of this M$ Application at once
21:04
<alkisg>
I don't think I've ever heard of proxy terminal servers
21:04
Anyway, I don't know if xfreerdp supports what you want or not, but it's an xfreerdp issue, not an LTSP one
21:05
LTSP bundles all that into a nice package that's easy to set up, but it's mostly glue, the real task for RDP is performed by xfreerdp
21:05
<dirkJ>
thanks a lot, will go ahead searching for an free alternative ;-)
21:06
<alkisg>
I don't think an "MS Terminal Server alternative" exists
21:06
I do think there are hacks to allow to run applications multiple times in MS terminal servers, but I don't think they're legal
21:07
<dirkJ>
yeah the xfreerdp would be able to connect to my 2008 server, but only 2 user at once... because 2 concurrent connections are allowed 2+ means I need a Terminal Server
21:08
and M$ is f.... expensive :D
21:08
<alkisg>
I think you're searching for a termserv.dll crack, not for an open source solution :)
21:09
An open source solution would be a re-implementation of windows
21:09
The MS licenses don't allow you to ..bypass the license
21:09
<dirkJ>
anyway thanks again, but now I have to leave to see the soccer match US vs Portugal
21:09
<alkisg>
Sure
21:10
<dirkJ>
have a nice day ahead !
21:10
bye bye

The only question about the match is whether Portugal will win 6-0, 9-0 or 12-0.
