Recently 2X released new version of its excellent 2X ApplicationServer and 2X VirtualDesktopServer products. Version 8 incorporates a number of new and interesting features such as:
- Managing Client Settings: Administrators will now have the ability to control user settings directly from the management console.
- Zero-Management Thin Clients: Includes all components necessary to convert any device to a thin client.
- Management of 2X SecureClientGateways: Allows administrators to remotely install and manage multiple 2X SecureClientGateways.
- Windows CE Clients: Ensures that Windows CE clients will have the same functionality as standard XP and Vista clients.
- Scanner (TWAIN) Redirection: TWAIN redirection, similar to the 2X Universal Printing feature, allows all devices using TWAIN technology to use hardware connected to client devices, including scanners and digital cameras.
