Thin Client Device Embedded with Linux
Featuring a high-powered customized Linux operating system and a full implementation of Infomatecs Java Network Technology, the BocaVision JNC205 Java Network Terminal is a cost-effective, full-function desktop client appropriate for server-based computing environments.
The JNC205 supports the Citrix Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) and Remote Desktop Protocol display protocols, which allow the device to operate as if Windows-based application programs were running locally.
Windows applications run through a connection to Windows NT Server 4.0 Terminal Server Edition. It currently supports the TCP/IP network protocol, as well as a wide variety of terminal emulation modes, including 3270, WYSE60, ANSI, AT386, VT320, BA80 and SNI97801 (7-bit, 8-bit).
