ThinLinc provides a connection to a full, graphical desktop environment on a remote computer, including audio, local resource sharing (drives/printers/etc.), and smart card authentication.
It operates over the secure SSH protocol and utilizes optimized variants of VNC, PulseAudio, and NFS to provide a responsive computing environment over the Internet or enterprise networks.
ThinLinc is pre-installed on instructional computers in IST Open-Area Computer Labs, accessible from the INS Programs > Unix-Linux menu.
If you do not have administrative access to your IST-managed workstation, please create an IT Ticket.
