I'm having an offtopic question about the use af tunneled rdp  
requests through nx.
At our school (pilot project) we're running k12ltsp in the whole  
school, with the use of an added windows term server.
As i'm living in Belgium we cannot simply leave the windows-edu-soft  
right now, cause most of the linuxedusoft is English only, and only a  
few are in dutch.
(yes, we are translating ;-)

At this moment we're testing out if it would be possible to put all  
of our edusoft on a windows TS rackserver in a datacenter, so anyone  
can access those apps when needen, from within all schools of our  
It would definitly need less hands-on like having 10 TS servers in  
our schools....
(The schools all have ADSL 3800down/512up)

The connection would be made thourgh an additional FreeNX server, for  
compression of the whole bunch ;-)
Has anyone ever tried such a setup?
Suggestions? Recommendations?

Any help would be greatly appreciated ;-)
