Exactly, you can access Windows virtual machines by installing rdesktop or
ICA client on LINUX. VDM is the VMware product and that uses RDP (rdesktop)

Hello Steve,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes! I am talking about the second one you, mentioned "HP" and "IGEL".
 I have a doubt, if they are just using a protocol like RDP or ICA how
come vmware is certifying those thin clients for VDM 2.1 or VDM 2.0

Are they doing something else as well. I have not seen those clients
so wondering how to do this. If i install just rdesktop or ICA on my
local Linux host OS, does that mean my system is also VDM 2.1 or 2.0
compatible ?

Regards,
Puneet
