If I want to access to my Thin Client running IGEL OS without going through UMS, is there any other alternative ? Can I install VNC software on the Thin Client and then connect it using VNC Client from my personal laptop ?
If you had the Remote Shadowing enabled, like here:
you could easily connect without using the UMS Console, in addition, you might replace our own VNC Viewer by your own if that fits better:
Got your settings but I am not sure if I understand it well. What I want to achieve is to allow support engineer able to login to IGEL Thin Client without UMS. Meaning, I can use VNC to login to Thin Client to assist end user if they have issues.
On first link: with a profile like in the KB you set the VNC Server to be configured AND started on the endpoint. After that you can use your own VNC Client, use IP/Hostname:0 and the Password you defined to connect. No need to use UMS Console there: s.a.s.
Last Link, was meant in case you want to use your own VNC Client inside the UMS.
