Tarantella today unveiled its Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) Client for Linux, claiming that the offering is the first commercially supported product written to Microsoft's RDP specification by a Microsoft licensee.
The remote control client, which has begun shipping to thin client OEMs, is designed to provide Linux thin client terminal vendors with standard RDP-based access to Windows applications via Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services.
The OEM version of the Tarantella RDP conforms to RDP version 5.1, and ships with full 24-bit colour support to improve remote access usability.
Additional features include com port support to allow server-side applications to access a variety of hardware connected to the client via the serial port.
It can also function as a client to the Tarantella Secure Global Desktop Terminal Services Edition software product.
In this configuration the client side is boosted by the addition of application publishing and load balancing functionality.
A version of the Tarantella RDP Client for Linux that supports PC Linux desktop distributions is expected to ship in the first half of 2005.
