    Yes, I demonstrated it at the last conference on an RM AsusMinibook, connecting to a Windows Server 2003 R2 Terminal Server via Firefox connecting to a Server running Sun's Secure Global Desktop.

    We now have thin clients as admin machines, just waiting for a few java cards so that when they login in they get the staff server rather than the general curriculum TS box.

    Thanks for the replies. Citrix would probably be a little too expensive.

    Tony, I hope you don't mind but I have just dropped you an email...

    Also works fine running under Thinstation, connecting via rdp to a 2003 Terminal server

    We have all our Sun Ray and SGD schools running SIMS via SGD and Sun Ray

    Does work quite nicely
