Jump to: navigation, search

Terminal-to-Terminal shadowing is made possible with Terminal Shadow Display Clients. A Terminal Shadow Display Client allows a terminal to shadow another terminal without needed to run the ThinManager interface or to be logged in as an administrator. This Shadow Group can contain a specific terminal or several terminals.
