[K12OSN] Re: Mozilla via Macintosh Thick Client

Whenever I need to use a Mac as a thin client I use "Chicken of the 
VNC" and login as a thin client user - everything works then - all I 
need is the server's IP. This works best if you are "inside" the 198. 
subnet - Mac side is fully functional, as c.o.t.VNC is treated just 
as another Mac application.
Hope this helps
