  • Remote, secure, high-resolution remote desktop access.
    ThinLinc is free for up to 5 concurrent users (users logged in at same time on same domain) and has a license fee if you need more users. So, you can test it to see if it meets your needs. Here's a sample of what I'm doing (I can even play games (OpenGL) on it, hardware accelerated) - - and there are other usecases at... Source: over 2 years ago
  • Any good Linux alternatives to teradici and splashtop remote?
    I was going to recommend ThinLinc but its server part is also for Linux. You could try TigerVNC (Cendio is one of the TigerVNC's maintainers) and TigerVNC works on windows... There are other VNCs client/server also. MeshCentral is another alternative already suggested :D. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Question: Remote Access Solution
    ThinLinc ( would help you... It's based on TigerVNC, but by default each user gets its own full desktop session when connecting remotely and can also resume later from somewhere else. Its picture quality and responsivness are great even on lower bandwidth/higher latency connections. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Thin Client recommendations
    If you ever want to change your main servers to Linux, there's a software called ThinLinc from Cendio ( that can also provide full remote desktop for your thinclients. It's free for up to 5 simultaneously connected users and its licences are sold based on simultaneously connected users, so, maybe it'd be a lot cheaper to have a Linux server machine (free) and pay for a number of simultaneously connected...

  • Is there a Linux equivalent of Remote Desktop Services?
    It can be downloaded at and it's free for up to 5 simultaneously connected users per domain... Since you mentioned 4 people, you're still good to use it for free with all four people simultaneously connected. If you need to increase the number of simultaneous users, its price is also lower than windows rdp CALs... (and believe me, it works a lot better than RDP!). Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Most Performant Way to Remotely Control a Linux Desktop that Streams Videos?
    There's a commercial software named ThinLinc, which its license is free for up to 5 simultaneously connected users. You should try it because I'm using it to access my desktop at workplace or my other computer at home (when someone is using it) and it's performance for youtube videos is the best that I've seen among other remote access softwares. Here's a video that I made that demonstrates its "Youtube"... Source: almost 3 years ago
  • [OPINION/ADVICE] Can I use the Debian that installs alongside PVE OS to RDP into the VM's?
    On each VM, you install a ThinLinc server ( And use your Raspberry Pi as a client installing Raspberry Pi OS (formerly known as Raspbian) and ThinLinc client on it, (or use one of your laptops). ThinLinc performance is great even on less bandwidth and higher latency connections. It's free for up to 5 simultaneous connections on same domain, so, you'll be ok if you connect to up to 5 VMs at same time.... Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Best remote desktop for linux?

    How was your experience with x2go? I was using it and then I found ThinLinc ( which is faster and has a better image quality than x2go. I did a video comparing both on LAN and remotely over the internet - Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Headless Daily Driver VM
    Is your headless VM running Linux? Try Thinlinc - (It's free for up to 5 simultaneous users on same domain) Here's a video that I made some weeks ago - - I'm comparing Thinlinc's performance against X2Go and SSH -X... I'm able to watch a youtube video running on my desktop machine at my workplace using even a raspberry pi as a client (the video was not using the raspberry,... Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Operating system with support for VNC, or some way to forward an OpenGL application or games
    Based on VNC, there's a software called Thinlinc ( that is easier to setup a "Thinlinc server" on your host computer and use a Thinlinc client to access it. By default you will get an idependent full desktop session or may run just a single app. It has clients ported for windows, mac, linux and works great even with a raspberry pi as a client. I don't know if you can use the Mac client on an iPad, but... Source: almost 3 years ago
