Hey, Newbie here and not a server-dude :)
I have a simple need to connect to a host PC running Windows 10 pro (quite noisy and large so want to move it to another room at home) from a thin client/dumb terminal.
I haven't bought it yet but thinking of one of the Dell Wyse clients (Suggestions welcome based upon requirement) I simply want to access it via RDP or similar, with a local keyboard, mouse, screen (and usb devices if needed)
I saw here that .rdp files can be loaded locally to a thin client/dumb terminal and I wanted to know exactly how? https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/ec0b4452-ebbd-4a6a-bf2e-5c4acdafdc25/local-config-for-wyse-thinos-and-microsoft-server-2016-rds-sessionbased and if this would be the way to achieve the above?
I use VDI's at work and they are perfect for what I need - but I don't want the VDI part :) no servers etc to manage, even if virtualised on the pc - I want the smallest config, storage and system footprint possible (a client running ThinOS (never seen it but seems simple?)
accessing a machine over RDP seems to be good enough). If I can install an rdp file to a wyse/similar (not running windows btw) then this will be perfect and I'll go buy one!
