Hi Axel,

I've looked into this quite a bit myself. Here is a post I made a short while back - http://forum.armtc.net/showthread.php?tid=1480

I've asked Gibbio to see if rpitc could be added to pi - ltsp. I also think deploying rpitc via an ltsp would give us the ease of deployment...RPI would only need a small set of files that rarely change. An LTSP server would allow us a central location for support.

I've setup pi - ltsp on my own home server and used screen scripts for rdesktop connections...worked great! The developer of pi-ltsp is very responsive if you have any questions. He was actively working to get his pi - ltsp working on the RPI2.

With the RPI2 out the resources on the Pi are greater now so the responsiveness should be even better.

This link will help you get it installed.
http://pi-ltsp.net/

I loaded up Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop in a VM. Then I read through the link above to install pi-ltsp. It's as easy as running a script. It takes a long while to install but worked flawlessly for me.

Good Luck!

RE: LINUX Terminal server with RPI as Client
Well in Linux the "terminal server" feature is quite old and the name is X Smile
To use Linux as a terminal server you can simply use one of the following method/free software:
- Xephyr
- ssh -X
- xrdp
- x2go server
- nomachine server
- and more i didnt remember now
If you want/need you can also use KVM/Spice/QEMU to create multiple virtual machine for your clients.
