Hi
I'm creating a windows RDS environment and would like to turn some of my old workstations into ThinClients.... can someone please let me know whether I can do this with the 2x OS and if I need anything else (ie the ThinClientServer)....

I'm at a loss :(

Hi there,

yes, the 2xOS allows you to turn old PC into thin clients.

The 2xThinClientServer is not needed although it's a usefull management tool when it comes to central manage thin clients.

Please have a look here:

- download 2xOS (http://www.2x.com/os/downloadlinks/)
- 2x manuals (http://www.2x.com/documentation/)

Spend attention to the hardware:

- hardware compartibility list (http://www.2x.com/os/hardware/)

Please check the different releases from the download side:

Latest (Default) - This version should be used for hardware manufactured between 2008 and 2009. This version uses an XOrg XServer 7.5 (1.7) and Kernel 2.6.34.

Latest (Hardware Specific) - This version should be used for hardware manufactured between 2009 and 2010. This version uses an XOrg XServer 7.4 (1.6) and Kernel 2.6.34. This version should be used if you are running NVIDIA, Intel Atom and SIS. Note that this version does not support VIA chipsets.

Legacy (XOrg) - This version should be used for legacy hardware (Hardware manufactured before 2007). This version uses an XOrg XServer 6.9 and Kernel 2.6.34.

Legacy (XFree) - This version should be used for legacy hardware (Hardware manufactured before 2002). This version uses an XFree XServer 6.6 and Kernel 2.6.22.


Kind regards,
gs
