What is the Thin Client Solution?



The thin client solution involves using network computers (NCs) linked to a large server. The server carries out all of the processing, application delivery and storage. The server is connected to the NCs using Citrix® Metaframe running on Windows NT4 Terminal Server. The network traffic consists of mouse clicks and key presses, from the NC to the server, and screen refreshes in the opposite direction. The NCs, therefore, have no moving parts and zero maintenance overheads.
