KDE Developers and Users Conference 2005

Speakers: Michael Manke

Language: English

Check the Schedule for an overview of all talks during this conference.

I was first time on aKademy 2004 in Ludwigsburg and I was very surprised. I'm an administrator of a Destrict Council of Berlin and take an active part in the migration project "Open For Future" to substitute Windows NT 4.0 with Linux clients in Berlin.

I use Linux-Application-Servers (SLES9) with actual NX-1.4-version and Windows NT clients to provide a secure Browser (konqueror) and Mail-Client (KMail) on SLES (KDE and KIOSK Admin Tool profiles) to hundreds of NT-users. It works good now. I think this information may be interesting for other administrators in large NX-applications.

The solution is equal to Citrix Web Access, but it is solved by Open Source, so I would say "Open Web Access". This solution, configuration files in profiles, my experiences, usefull scripts and special settings can be an interesting Talk or Workshop. I'm in Malaga from 27.08. to 02.09.2005 .
