Comparison of connection types

 

The Thin Client system supports four different connection types. These are: the connection via the KVM-box, which has the most functions, the direct connection to the host PC via NetC@p, VNC or the direct connection via RDP. These options differ in principle, and the following table lists the pros and cons of each connection type to enable you to choose the one that best suits your system:
