    Linux RDP Thin Client


    OK, I've been all over downloading and configuring the thin client distros out there and they sound great, but none work.

    I need a thin client that only allows users to open an RDP session to a windows terminal server that can run off a live cd but if possible, off a usb pen drive.

    My company has about 200 work stations and is going to use terminal server to allow everyone to work. We purchased some new HP thin clients running a linux distro and its exacly what we need, but HP only wants to provide it to run on THEIR hardware.

    Most of the boxes we have are dells not super old, but not the latest and greatest either.

    I would appreciate ANY help, urls, instruction, volunteering, whatever.

    Thanks.

    As far as I know RDP6 is not supported in the Unix world.
    Thus either run an old version of RDP or use VNC.

    Hope that helps you a bit.
