Using Istation with NComputing thin clients

IstationComputers continue to play an increasingly critical role in the classroom, and software-driven learning systems are quickly becoming an integral part of the educational process. 

Istation is a fully animated multimedia application, offering an interactive learning experience for students and powerful resources for teachers. This type of product typically isn’t supported by thin-client environments, however, NComputing vSpace supports Istation with some setup modifications.

There are a few different ways to configure the system for Istation functionality in NComputing desktop sessions. The simplest setup involves the use of a script which automates the creation of separate Istation folders and executables for each NComputing user session. This automated process avoids the need for more complicated methods such as the use of virtual IP addresses.

For more information on the proper setup of Istation in an NComputing environment, please refer to these specialized installation instructions.

If you have further questions about compatibility, please contact us directly.
