Thin client question... (Multiple users on Windows XP???)
Wasn't sure which forum to put this question in.
I've found a piece of software called WinConnect Server XP. Let's XP handle more than the maximum (2 or 3?) rdp connections, pushing up to a maximum of 21. I've tested out a trial of the software and managed to open eight connections, so I'm guessing it's legit.
I want to know if I can set up some thin clients to connect via rdp (rdesktop maybe?) to a winconnect-enabled machine without using a boot server. Thinstation looks promising, but I wouldn't know where to start. If I could set up a simple load-balancing system then brilliant, but otherwise I'm not bothered.
The idea is to put a couple of beefy machines running the software in key locations (such as the IT classrooms, keeping traffic local) and have a poor-man's thin client setup.
