This is Awesome.

When I was working at a local College we looked into this and went with LTSP, which was ok but it was buggy and just wouldnt do what we wanted it to. It certainly wasnt as slick as this. Perhaps X2go was not as good back then, 10 years or more ago. I may spin this up as I have many a use case for it. Thanks Tom.

Awesome video and good news that we have more choices to x11vnc

However, to me the main con is that it seems like there is no iOS client available.

#4

Could you use VNC? There may be an iOS app for VNC

#5

VNC has all clients including iOS

#6

but set up with ssh.

#7

ssh is very attractive, but I use vnc only internally or via vpn

#8

Even so, set it up to use an SSH tunnel. In x11vnc, just add “-localhost” to the command line arguments.

Does anyone got X2Go working with KDE5 Plasma as the Client Envoirment and use the “connection to local desktop”?
It seems to be very buggy/laggy.
Same with VNC

I would like to use X2go to remotely access windows and linux OS. Do I need to install server and client on each OS

or just 1 server and a client on each OS and connect each one to the server?

Your second statement is correct.

Have one server (or as many as you like) use the X2go client to connect to those servers on which ever platform you choose.
