AbulÉdu is a Ubuntu-based distribution for primary schools. It is currently in French but most of the tools can be translated. An AbulÉdu server can handle Mac, Windows (samba), GNU/Linux and X terminal (with LTSP) clients. The server acts as a central gateway for Web, mail, and printing, and facilitates the management of classes, pupils, and teachers. Everybody can publish Web pages on an intranet using Apache and all administration tasks are performed using a browser. The result is that a teacher who is not a computer specialist can install and manage a school network.
rdesktop Console is a Perl/Tk based utility for Linux to work with multiple rdesktop servers. It works with rdesktop 1.1.0 from www.rdesktop.org to manage multiple sessions for logging into Windows NT and 2K Terminal Servers. It allows creation and management of a simple list of servers and a default resolution for the terminal windows.
LibVNCServer is a library that makes it easy to make a VNC server. All you do is provide a frame buffer and some I/O functions, and call a function each time the frame buffer changes. It supports all encodings known, including tight, zlib, ZRLE, and cursor encodings. It also includes the HTTP server from Xvnc, so you can start a java viewer by surfing to http://my.vnc.server:5801 or similar. It includes a beta version of LibVNCClient, which makes it easy to make a VNC client. Also included is LinuxVNC, which is to the Linux console as WinVNC is to the Windows desktop.
The IBM 3270 Terminal Applications suite consists of seven applications. x3270 is an IBM 3278/3279 Terminal Emulator for the X Window System. c3270 is a curses-based 3278/3279 emulator. wc3270 is the Windows console version of c3270. s3270 is a script-based screen-scraping application for IBM hosts. tcl3270 is a Tcl- or Extended Tcl-based IBM host screen-scraping language. pr3287 is an IBM 3287 printer emulator, which can be invoked from x3270 or c3270, or can run standalone as a daemon. wpr3287 is the Windows version of pr3287. x3270, c3270, wc3270, s3270 and tcl3270 can emulate a color (3279) or monochrome (3278) terminal. They implement the TN3270E protocol, support IND$FILE file transfer, printing via 3287 emulation, and multiple host character sets (including non-Latin sets and DBCS Chinese and Japanese).
Multi Gnome Terminal is an enhanced version of gnome-terminal, with many powerful new features and extensions. The most notable enhancement is the ability to run multiple terminals within the same window. Each terminal may be accessed by its "tab", through keyboard shortcuts, or menu selections. Inactive terminals provide an alert when the buffer changes by changing the color of the tab labels. Other enhancements include a toolbar, a buttonbar, flexible command options to launch new terminals, tabs, and shells from either the GUI or command line, customizable key bindings for MGT functions and other uses, font shadowing, the ability to "split" terminals so that each window can simultaneously multiple terminals, the ability to "view" or "bond" terminals with other terminals, and various other improvements.
vt52vnc is a VNC viewer which can be used on prehistoric green monochromatic terminals called vdt52s, which are capable of vector graphics. It is functional and nicely displays X on the terminal, but without the routines for dithering, compression, and password support. Its architecture provides a framework to add those features if needed.
