People say

We’re a small life science startup, we have 3-4 scientists who need to remote into two Linux systems via GUI (they’re not command line folks) to test out some scientific programming. I used ThinLinc at my last company and was pleased how much better it was over NX/VNC/etc, and with an easy setup as well. We have the 5-pack license, I’m sure as we hire more folks we’ll need to get more. Thanks and keep up the good work!


I must say that I am quite surprised by your product. We have used a lot of different remote desktop solutions in the past (RealVNC, NiceDCV, NoMachine, ...) but all had some issues at one point or the other. I came over ThinLinc only accidentally, but I was smiling all the way though my evaluation. Many things where we thought "it would be nice, if..." are addressed here.


ThinLinc is much smoother for the GUI experience over long-distance connections. Even from 2000 miles away ThinLinc provides a good experience, in our past NX can be more choppy. The ThinLinc installer is much nicer too, it’s much better at solving the dependencies on Linux systems. The built-in security in ThinLinc is a huge win, now we don’t have to deal with trying to secure/tunnel the insecure software protocols like VNC.

L. S.

I found the software to be very light and responsive: it's almost as if I was using the computer locally. I used to copy to my notebook the post-processing outputs of the numerical simulations (videos and images) that I run on the workstation. Now, using ThinLinc, I view such results remotely (videos and images load and run with great performance).


Thank you for this suggestion. I have been banging my head against the wall for the past few days trying to figure out what was wrong with Debian 11 and VNC. I couldn't ever make it work with anything other than XFCE, and that was with only one account. So, not useful if I need additional users accessing the system. I installed this, and it was set up faster than VNC was!

So I came across this article looking for help on configuring multiple ports/users for TigerVNC for a training class we are to start. I saw someone spoke about ThinLinc. I went to their website downloaded it, and can't believe how this is not more popular, its utterly a God send for people that need a vnc tool. It's fantastic.

I highly recommend ThinLinc!

In terms of feedback, I can say that I have tried VNC (clunky and no sound), MS Remote Desktop (painfully, painfully slow) and Real VNC (how on Earth do you install the license if you use professional subscription?). ThinLinc was easy to set up and just worked extremely well. 85ms is not so far away, and yet the MS client just chokes on it.
