Chapter 6. Client Planning

In this chapter:

  • The Thin Client

    No matter how powerful and robust your server is, or how well you have architected your environment, in the end the success of the project will be measured by the usability of the client.

  • RDP Client Support

    When looking for a Terminal Server-only client, you're looking for computing devices that support the Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).

  • ICA Client Support

    The MetaFrame additions extend the reach of the Terminal Server client beyond those supported by RDP to include those devices that support the Citrix Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) protocol.

  • Windows-Based Terminals

    As with other traditional terminals (3270, VT220, and so on), the goal of the Windows-based terminal is to provide a fast, low-cost, and reliable way to access a Windows Terminal Server environment.

  • Deployment Scenarios with RDP and ICA

    The presentation protocol that you want to use can influence your decision on what deployment scenario to implement.

  • Client Deployment and Support Planning

    When planning and developing your Terminal Server implementation, it's easy to get caught up in the technical details and forget or trivialize the planning requirements for both your users and your support staff.
