Default Terminal Server for PC-BSD?
Hi.

Anyone use PC-BSD as a terminal server, just like the LTSP project.

I have to build a thin client environment for a school. Would be great if I could base that on FreeBSD aka PC-BSD instead of Linux.

Default LTSP
LTSP stands for Linux Terminal Server Project
FTSP does not exist in the moment (I'think so)

Do you know "freenx" and "nxserver"
Clients are aviable for win32 and unix/linux

Install it from the ports

Terminal server config is really straight forward. You can install VNC server if you want it fast.

Default VNC fast?
Sorry VNC isn't fast vs freenx

if you have a Broadband of 100 KB you can use nxserver like a Windows Terminal Server. With VNC you can't. VNC is a good idea for short works (like a Support) but for real working forget it!

PS: nxserver run with a "like 24 bit Colours" Resolution very fast.

Default nxserver
@Antik

of course, I use it every day. I use my home-pc (pc-bsd) over internet with the "nomaschine" client from winxp and from Debian.

-> Ports

And using x11rdc? to access to a computer, it is as powerfull or more than terminal server.

Now I don't remember correctly the name of the feature, but I've used it with freebsd and GNU/Linux and it is very usefull.

VNC is a bit slow for me. But activating this on the x11 server you can have remote access, the feature was xrdcmp, I think, now I don't remember correctly the name.
