Good morning

before investing time in learning ltsp I would like to know if I can use a client on normal laptop running windows or linux to access the ltsp server ?
06:26
<alkisg>
LTSP is for net-booting clients in LAN environment,
06:26
which means, you'd normally netboot your laptop and use ltsp without touching its disk, without uninstalling windows or anything,
06:26
now, for "remote desktop", linux has various programs, and they're all unrelated to LTSP,
06:27
so the final answer is "yes, you can access the ltsp server from windows or linux using vnc, x2go, freerdp and a lot of other programs, not related to ltsp"
06:28
<Emmanuel84>
so that's a solution I can fight for in the company I work for to have jump servers to unix like environement
06:29
<alkisg>
You can provide more details if you want a more detailed advice

we have several jump servers inside the secured zone this let us access to the production and dev servers.... I am kind of tired to pay licenses or to see project being stopped because the cost of licences are to high. I was looking for a solution to replace the terminal servers to access a linux terminal server.
06:32
<alkisg>
I'm not sure what "jump servers" mean
06:32
Like, desktop proxy servers?
06:32
<Emmanuel84>
that linux terminal server would become our main jump server to *nix servers
06:33
jump server is a desktop proxy yes.... a server that is between workstations and production secured servers
06:33
<alkisg>
So, the users e.g. have windows, then they'd connect to the jump server == ltsp server, and from there to the production server == unix?
06:33
<Emmanuel84>
or network equipment btw
06:33
you got it right
06:33
<alkisg>
AFAIK it would be much more efficient to use a VPN or SSH proxy, not a desktop proxy
06:34
So that screen grabbing/transferring only happens once, not twice
06:35
In any case, if your users already have an operating system, you're NOT looking for ltsp. You're looking for a remote desktop solution like xfreerdp/xrdp, x2go, vnc etc
06:35
LTSP is mostly the "boot from network" part
06:36
<Emmanuel84>
ok thank you for the clear answer... I will look into those project and see what best fit our needs
06:37
<alkisg>
OK; if you need professional help, i'm available :)
06:37
Cheers

<Emmanuel84>
just for information, I got information about the existence of ltsp in the french magazine "inside linux" :)
06:38
cheers
