Re: [K12OSN] K12LTSP and Citrix?



The ICA Client is available from the Ctrix website.  According to the
license agreement, it can't be easily redistributable.

The applications will run on the Citrix server, so any saved user files will
be saved from the Citrix server not the client.  You have to set up the
Citrix server to have the home directories for the students to be correctly
mapped to the file server you want to use.

I don't know how easy it is to have the standard windows login.  I think
that PXES allows you to select your login screen for your clients, see
http://pxes.sourceforge.net.
