Linux Terminal Server : Thin Client Computing in Application Mode



Alrite fellas, here I tried at home running the Terminal Server/Services on RHEL 3 on a application mode. What you'll be needing is...
  • CUPS/Samba running on your Terminal Server (To print your work locally)
  • Share your printer over network(if you have one) or just have cups find it locally.
  • You'll need OpenOffice installed on your Linux Server.
  • NX Client binary on your machine
  • NX Server installed on your server. (see the following post Setting up FreeNX )
This is actually rather simple and cool, just follow these print screens to follow the whole setup and run scenario!

And voila you have a not only running OpenOffice writer program but also you can print it locally.


Starting up the OpenOffice application



Setting up the printer



And working with it!



Enjoy!

PS: We will try more applications on terminal services in the coming days.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
