Citrix provides remote access to MS/Windows within GNU/Linux, using the Windows Terminal Server (WTS). This is commercial software, although the clients (for a variety of platforms, including GNU/Linux and Java) are available for download.
Citrix provides both a standard client and a Java based client that can run as an application or as an applet (although the Java application is only available as version 6, with version 7 only providing an applet). The clients can be downloaded from the Citrix web site, after agreeing to their licensing conditions.
To install the client on GNU/Linux:
$ wget http://download2.citrix.com/files/en/products/client/ica/current/ICAClient-7.00-1.i386.rpm $ wajig rpminstall ICAClient-7.00-1.i386.rpm $ /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfcmgr Create new Entry Network Server [ACT] [citrix.togaware.com] Window Window Size [75%] Login [kayon,NEXUS,passwd] Tools -> Settings Drive Mapping H: /home/kayon/ Enable Drive Mapping $ /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfcmgr -desc ACT
The Java client can be installed as in:
