A thin client network is a client-server architecture where client computers depend primarily on a central server for processing activities. The client machines (thin clients) mainly focus on passing user input to remote services and receiving and displaying the output; thin clients aren't as much about the hardware or software as about the design.
This book has all the information you need to easily set up your own Linux thin client network. It will help you evaluate how a thin client network fits into your organization and make informed choices on the hardware and software needed for your deployment, discusses design issues, and guides you with building, configuring, and supporting the network.
The author has given thought to the book to create something that is well rounded, and meets the needs of small and large organizations.
Written by experienced Linux thin client network designer and implementer, this book walks you through the concepts of thin client networks, and design issues associated with implementations of various sizes, setting up the framework, outlining strategies, principles, and best practice for creating the design, before leading you through the implementation step by step.
