Using ThinPoint client you can remotely access ThinPoint Virtualized desktop sessions and provisioned applications. There two types of ThinPoint clients:

Direct Access ThinPoint client

Requires a port to be opened and forwarded to the ThinPoint host.

Universal Client (recommended)

Does not require firewall rule adjustment or port forwarding.

ThinPoint Client setup can be accessed from the Service Provisioning Manager found in the Start menu -> Programs -> ThinPoint.



ThinPoint client currently supports Windows client operating systems (Windows XP, XP embedded and Vista and Windows 7).
ThinPoint Open Source Linux client, tested on OpenSuse 11.1 with dependencies to KDE Linux desktop technology and libqt4 and libqt4-x11 libraries.
ThinPoint client currently does not support MAC clients. To access from a MAC client you can use NetLeverage WebPoint, Microsoft RDC client CoRD. Please be aware when a client other than WebPoint is used, the ThinPoint seamless windowing is not available.
PrintPoint functions are currently not available in Linux or Apple MAC clients.   
When connecting from a Linux client you could use CUPS or similar method to allow Linux client printing.
When connecting from an Apple MAC client you could use built-in RDC client or CoRD printing feature or use Apple Bonjour for Windows to allow visibility of Apple MAC client attached printers to the ThinPoint host.
Please visit Open Source download section of NetLeverage Support site to obtain the source code for ThinPoint Linux and MAC open source clients.
By default TCP port 3389 is required to connect to the ThinPoint sessions. PrintPoint functionality does not require any extra TCP port.
