Projects / ThinStation


Thinstation is a mini Linux distribution that enables you to convert standard PCs into full-featured, diskless thin clients supporting all major connectivity protocols like Windows terminal services (RDP), Citrix Ica, X, NX, telnet, ssh, etc. It can be booted from the network using Etherboot/PXE or from standard media like floppy/CD/hd/flash-disk etc. The configuration is centralized to simplify terminal management.
