To work with Terminal Server, common practice is to install Windows on users' computers and run Remote Desktop Connection. We recommend to remove users hard disks and boot WTware by network instead of Windows installation. The result in both cases — Windows Terminal Server desktop on users' screen.

WTware is optimized for network boot

No need to install operating system on hard drive. No need in hard drive at all. Just connect new computer to network, select to boot by network in BIOS — and thin client is ready to use.

In remote branches WTware may boot from USB flash or CD‑ROM.

Network boot

Easy to configure

WTware includes services for network boot. In the simplest case (single server, single subnet, no DHCP) it's enough to install WTware on server. Setup will perform all needed server configuration and thin clients will be able to boot. For further workplaces tuning use graphic configurator, it knows everything.

In large complex networks WTware needs two configured DHCP server parameters to boot.

Easy to configure

Works with Windows Server 2012R2

WTware works with all common RDP servers we know. We tested Windows Server Terminal Services from 2000 to 2012R2, Hyper-V VDI, Windows Remote Desktop Services xrdp on Linux, Mac Terminal Server, XP Unlimited.

Four simultaneous sessions

WTware can connect to four Terminal Servers at the same time. Flexible system of menus and options allows to adapt workplaces to different scenarios of personal computers use.

Works everywhere

WTware works on any computer with x86-compatible processor. Works on new Intel NUC nettops, on HP thin clients, on comon office PCs. And on those old Celerons, that you sent to rest last year, it also works.

You can connect printer, bar‑code scanner to thin client, logon to Windows by smart‑card. Please, look at the full list of supported hardware.

Works everywhere

Raspberry Pi

Credit-card sized motherboard with memory and Broadcom ARM-processor costs $35 at English manufacturer site. WTware works with Raspberry Pi 3 (with Wi-Fi onboard) and Raspberry Pi 2 devices. It can be powered from embedded monitor USB-hub. WTware boots from SD-card or by network. It's performance is sufficient for performing office tasks.

WTware for Raspberry Pi is free.

Easy to replace workplace

Thin client contains no hard drive. There's nothing to break. When thin client is watered instead of user's favourite cactus, just replace hardware. All the settings are stored on server, programs are on server, user data is on server.

Invented by collective intelligence

First WTware release is dated by 2003 year. It worked on computers with i486 processor and 8MB of RAM, run from one floppy. There are thousands of topics with product discussions on our forum. WTware is the result of system administrators wishes.

Invented by collective intelligence

Install and forget

WTware mission is to make user computers administration not more complicated than using electric kettle. Brought a box, connected a wire, pressed a button. Works. If in two years is broken, replaced the box, connected the wire, pressed the button. Works again. Administrator has to administer servers and network. But he can and should get rid of operating system and software administration on workplaces.
