I am pretty new to system administration, and I am definitively new to serverfault, so apologies should my question not be following SF standards to the 100%.
This is my problem: I have a xubuntu machine with a number of accounts on it that I need to access remotely (in the same LAN but not in the same room). I would like my users to be able to use the GUI. More specifically I want to emulate the behaviour you experience when connecting via "terminal server client" to a windows machine.
If I got the documentation right, I can't use VNC as I do not need to "spec" an existing GUI session running on the remote machine: I want to open a new GUI session from the remote machine.
I considered a number of possibilities (XDMCP, FreeNX, the not-so-free NX from NoMachine...) but from ubuntu's documentation it looks like the best supported way of doing this is by using LSPT, as this is the architecture they already use in their thin client configuration (edubuntu).
Now, this is the question: although I could find in various places references to the fact you can use LSPT to do set up thick clients, I could not find any documentation on how to do this. Can anybody point me in the right direction?
Thank you in advance for you time! :)
