Our Experience and linux lite

(1/1)

Giuseppe_Chillemi:
Hi,
  as written in my introduction, I have 5 clients running linux lite.
  All of them are used to connect to our Server 2008 via RDP

  The network is configured with only one fixed IP address assigned to the server.

   Installing the system is really easy. You put the live CD on it, partition the drive and run installation.

   From time to time we need new clients as old on usually fail in some area. The most faulty component is the hard drive.

   Due to this reason it would be really great if we could install Linux Lite on USB Key, configure it and have it always ready to run simply moving the USB Key.

   I will start a different topic for this question on a different area.
  The default software we install on every client is
  Skype
  Remmina

  We have encountered few issues with the Remmina client:

   The Key LCTRL, LALT, and @ are not working. The numeric / prints "-".
   This creates many problems with our daily work. A workaround has not been found.

   In the future we will install and try more software.
   We will need an SIP client and some office software.

   Our client PC are at least Pentium4. I don't know if anything less would work.

   Thanks to the authors of the distribution. I hope we could help improve your project with our daily experience.

   Regards,
     Giuseppe Chillemi

Hello Giuseppe,

Don't know answer to Remmina key issues -- sorry.

Did a search on SIP and got this:  http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/sip-client-software-phone-for-linux-which-actually-works-4175416322/.  Seems like that poster tried a bunch of programs and says this one worked:  sflphone.

I don't know if this search engine works in Italian, but if you don't mind English answers try using Linux Beginner Search Engine.

Giuseppe_Chillemi:

Thank you for your suggestions.

We will try sflphone

We have also 2 old Zoiper licences which are still good but open source does not force you to use one machine and we buy and recycle old hardware because we whish to be enviromnent friendly. Open source is the perfect companion for a company like us.

The REMMINA problems is really an hassle. We use the @ simbol every day for emails and having it not working is very frustrating. This could impact on the feelings of my collegues about our choice.

Regards,
   Giuseppe Chillemi

Perhaps it would be better to choose another RDP software then to just rely on Remmina to solve your issue.
