Using Virtualbox as a thin client to connect to VMware View
The company I work for recently implemented VMware View. I work from home on a regular basis and would like to access my virtual desktop when working from home. My company currently has no plans to setup a View Security Server, so the only way to connect to the View Connection Server remotely is by first establishing a VPN connection to the company network.
I would prefer not to run the VPN client directly on my home PC. Instead, I would like to create a thin client inside a Virtualbox VM and use that thin client to access the VPN and the View Connection Server.
Before I dive in, I have a few questions:
- Is there an alternative setup that I might be overlooking?
- What is the best thin client OS to use for the Virtualbox VM? I'm using the Cisco VPN Client which claims to work on Linux.
