To work with Terminal Server common practice is to install Windows on users computers and run Remote Desktop Connection. We recommend to remove users hard disks and boot WTware by network instead of Windows installation. The result in both cases — Windows Terminal Server desktop on users screen.
WTware is optimized for network boot, but thin clients may boot also from local media.
WTware is easy to configure, it includes services for network boot, it's graphic configurator makes workplaces tuning as simple as possible.
WTware works with all common RDP servers we know, up to Windows Server 2016.
WTware can connect to four Terminal Servers at the same time.
You can connect printer, bar-code scanner to thin client, logon to Windows by smart-card.
It's easy to replace workplace for all the settings are stored on server, programs are on server, user data is on server.
Invented by collective intelligence. Since 2003 we work to make WTware meet to all administrator desires.
WTware mission is to make user computers administration not more complicated than using electric kettle.
For more details about WTware for x86 devices see official WTware site.
Raspberry Pi is a credit card sized motherboard with memory and Broadcom ARM-processor, that costs $35 at English manufacturer site. Monitor USB hub power is enough for Raspberry Pi, no need in additional power supply.
You just plug in mouse and keyboard, connect it to monitor and you're ready to go.
Old Raspberry Pi versions were with another processor, 1 kernel and less than 1GB RAM. Please, pay attention when buying, for WTware won't work on versions other than Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and Raspberry Pi 2 Model B.
WTware for Raspberry Pi can boot from local SD-card or by network. In both cases you need microSD card. Even for network boot microSD is still needed: there's no flash with BIOS on board, and code, that will load boot images by network, is stored on microSD.
Configuration files structure is the same as in WTware for all devices. You can use graphic configurator, just remember, that half of parameters are not supported yet.
Monitor resolution for Pi is stored in config.txt file on SD card, not in WTware configuration files. On Raspberry Pi manufacturer site you can find all settings for config.txt file. By default Raspberry Pi sets 1920x1080 resolution.
Raspberry Pi was tested with old cheap 18.5" Philips 191V monitor connected by HDMI-DVI cable in it's standart resolution 1366x768. If Pi works with such device in such resolution, then it should work with most other digital (HDMI and DVI) monitors in other resolutions. For 1366x768 resolution by HDMI-DVI cable these two lines must be specified:
Sound, FAT32/exFAT/NTFS disks, printers, scanners, USB-COM ports redirection work now.
WTware for Raspberry Pi performance is sufficient for performing office tasks.
WTware license gives the right to use WTware software and removes banner "Evaluation copy" from the screen. For more details read WTware licensing terms.
License is valid for the current build and at least for all WTware releases during a year after payment (when license generation algorithm changes, new licenses we grant for free). No annual payments needed.
License is bound to terminal network card. Every case of network card outage is considered individually.
License is bound to MAC of the interface, that is used to connect to terminal server. Only one interface — either WiFi or Ethernet.
