    ThinLinc provides an alternative to running an X11 server on your desktop computer. This service works very well over a high latency, low bandwidth, or off-campus connection compared to running an X11 server locally.

    There are two ways to use thinlinc

    Once logged on

    • open terminal on remote desktop
    • login to RCAC host, e.g., ssh -Y snyder.rcac.purdue.edu
    • start X windows application
