Linux Terminal Servers for Any Business
After you log in, add a few test users directly to your LTS.
I always recommend that you create several user logins to test the prototype server and to avoid using root. It's also a good first step before getting into the minutia of configuring Samba (smb.conf file), ADS authentication and other features.
Now you are ready to connect other PCs on the same subnet to the LTS.
I experience one of my favorite joys when I watch multiple thin clients log in to the LTS and open applications. My adrenaline always flows when I witness the sheer speed of many thin clients simultaneously starting an application like OpenOffice.org. A few seconds, and every screen shows the application ready for use.
I hope that this article encourages you to try out the power and elegance of the LTSP in your business or home office.
Once you open the door and get your LTS up and running, you can integrate many other powerful features. You can include network printer support, automatic backups, file sharing and much more. An LTS may provide just the key your business needs to enter the beneficial world of Linux.
