Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

QNX has become the first RTOS (real time operating system) manufacturer to support a Citrix ICA client. The client will be available for QNX 4 and QNX/Neutrino, the former in Q1 and the latter following the release of QNX/Neutrino 2.0. QNX Software Systems (QSSL) has produced RTOS software for the x86 for over 17 years, and more recently added MIPS and PowerPC. The company suggests that the addition of Citrix ICA means low-cost NCs or even wireless hand-helds could provide both mainframe access and the ability to use Win32 applications. "To understand what this means," says QSSL VP of strategic alliances, "imagine a diskless network terminal, or even a wireless portable device with just four megabytes of RAM, accessing full-blown enterprise solutions like PeopleSoft and SAP, as well as desktop applications like Word and Excel." ®
