Setting up and using a terminal server within a corporate network is the epitome of centering digital data processing. He is responsible for ensuring that all processes and programs take place centrally on one device. But how does it actually work?
When a terminal server is integrated into an internal network, a defined number of clients have access to it. If a program is now called up and executed by a computer, this only takes place on the terminal server and no longer on the computer itself. The end devices can be different: computers, notebooks, tablets or even smartphones.
The programs that run on the terminal server only need to be installed once there. The execution, however, can take place as often and at the same time as desired. In addition to central access to programs, users only save their files on the terminal server and no longer locally on their own device.
Only the keyboard and mouse inputs are transferred to the terminal server. Everything else, even the individual desktop, is represented on the server as virtualization.
X2GO is a free terminal server solution. Users who have logged on to an X2GO server with the client can run programs on the server. The client, which runs on the user's device, only takes on the display. The X2GO server, which in this case acts as an application server, can provide all possible services and applications that can be installed on the respective platform. As long as the server has enough reserves, it is easy to add new clients.
Since X2GO uses the SSH protocol and therefore SSH has to be open to the Internet if no Virtual Private Network (VPN) is in use, there are many options for integrating two-factor authentication. Two-factor authentication (2FA), often also referred to as two-factor authentication, describes the identification of a user by means of the combination of two different and, in particular, independent components (factors).
The digitization of business life, essential production processes and private life is in full swing. At the same time, threats from server failures, viruses and cybercrime are increasing. The whole thing is reinforced by neglecting IT security both in the private sphere and in the business world. Protective mechanisms that are really necessary are usually only considered when the damage has already occurred and the restoration of the IT infrastructure has caused enormous costs.
Linux offers you a secure basis in your IT infrastructure right from the start. On the one hand, because it has always been conceived as an operating system geared towards network operation. On the other hand, because the free availability of the source code makes the possibility of defective or misused functions almost impossible. In addition, “Open Source” has always meant permanent improvement by innovative specialists from all over the world. In the meantime, more and more users trust Linux, which among other things provides the kernel for the numerous Android installations, including companies and institutions such as Siemens, BMW, Lufthansa, Deutsche Post AG, Greenpeace and state institutions including the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection.
You are a company, a medium-sized company, a craft company, a sole trader with the appropriate IT infrastructure and you want to fully satisfy your customers with your products. Or you are a private individual with corresponding support requests. Your IT infrastructure should work reliably around the clock. As an expert in this field, IT-LINUXMAKER can protect your information effectively and quickly.
