2XOS

Introduction

The 2XOS is a proprietary Debian based operating system which can be installed in a standalone mode on Thin Clients, offering standalone RDP and the ability to connect to a 2X Remote Application Server. Before adding any hardware (Thin Clients) to the Client Manager to manage and assign a 2XOS to, you should configure the 2XOS builds which the Thin Clients will download.

Making a Version of 2XOS Available for Thin Clients

To add a 2XOS to the 2X Remote Application Server and make it available for Thin Clients navigate to the 2XOS tab in the Client Manager category and click Add from the Tasks drop down menu.

  • Tick the checkbox next to the 2XOS version you would like to download and click the Add button. Once downloaded click Done so it is added to the list of available operating systems for clients.
  • If you have already downloaded a copy of the 2XOS, click th Browse button to the 2XOS zip file and click Open to add it to the list of available operating systems. Click Done when ready.

Adding a 2XOS to the List of Available Operating Systems for Clients

Note: You can download a version of the 2XOS from the 2XOS download page: http://www.2x.com/os/downloadlinks/.

Once the 2XOS is added to the List of thin client operating systems, it can be downloaded and used by thin clients on the network. To configure the 2X Remote Application Server to support thin clients refer to the section Configuring Thin Client and 2XOS Support on page .

Configuring a Version of the 2XOS as Default

Navigate to the 2XOS tab in the Client Manager category and highlight the 2XOS name and click Set Default from the Tasks drop down menu. Therefore if a 2XOS has not been configured for a specific thin client, the default 2XOS will be used.
