Overview of the CLI Linux Thin Client
CLI Linux is a cloud capable thin client, with its auto-configure features, flexibility, full feature set,, versatility, and is an expandable high-performance terminal that gives users the ability to access Windows, Internet, multimedia, and legacy applications, at a lower total cost of ownership than PCs or other computing products. The Linux client software, based on Ubuntu Linux, has built-in support for RDP and Citrix ICA HDX protocol, Host Terminal emulations (such as IBM 5250, 3270 and 3151, DEC VT-420, Wyse WY-60, among others), Firefox Web Browser, Google Chrome browser, VMWare View (PCOIP), and VNC client/server support. Users can access applications running on Microsoft Windows Terminal Server 2003, 2008 and Citrix XENAPP, as well as mainframe, midrange, UNIX and other legacy applications, multimedia and the Web.
This provides broad application compatibility and system integration, improving user productivity. And since it uses Linux, the client software supports Linux device drivers and development tools, and many third-party device drivers. This facilitates rapid integration and porting of local applications into the Linux terminal. Like all CLI thin clients, Linux works seamlessly with our Device Manager administration software. This powerful tool gives System Administrators complete centralized control of all CLI desktops, dramatically reducing support costs.
