I figured one had to support sysvinit for backwards compatibility.

I could have taken the easy approach, and just written sysvinit scripts and said 'screw it'. But... I really do want our software to start more dynamically than sysvinit might permit.

For those who haven't seen it or tried it yet...

[ https://guacamole.apache.org/ ]

Guacamole is an access server that requires nothing but a web browser to connect to the RDP, VNC, SSH, Telnet sessions of your choice. One might expect this to be slow and clunky, but it's actually *really* good. It's more responsive than even some non-browser-based clients.

I'm using it now, in fact :)

That's intriguing.

I wonder how well that works within a virtualized environment. Hmm...

That's how I'm running it. The underlying Linux machine is even joined to an Active Directory domain. If that doesn't make your head explode...

Well, that's the kind of blinkered, Philistine pig-ignorance I've come to expect from you non-creative garbage...

All we wanted was a simple Linux server, not an abbatoir.

I've gotta say though, nslcd (aka nss-pam-ldapd) is freaking awesome. Joining a Linux machine to an Active Directory domain used to be a gigantic pain in the ass. Winbind was a piece of garbage, had too many dependencies, and had a habit of just not staying working. nslcd ties the name service switch directly to LDAP, no shims, no gimmicks. It also works with *any* LDAP server, not just AD.

When you have hundreds of servers it's nice to be able to log in with your LDAP credentials instead of having to go into the password vault to fetch the root password.

How badly does it consume bandwidth, doyouknow?

I'd expect if it's using those underlying protocols, it's probably fairly trim.

Oh.... and I wonder if you can record it to an mp4 or something. That'd be super-useful.

I haven't looked at bandwidth consumption because the server I'm running it on has plenty of it. It is going to use its own protocol to the client browser plus whatever bandwidth is consumed from the Guac server to the server you're logging into.

I haven't tried using it from anywhere other than my own well-endowed home network yet. I'll report back next week when I'm sitting in an airport using a tethered phone and we'll see. I think it's still going to be pretty good.

And yes, there is a screen recording module available. :)

For my needs, that screen recording thing, if I can route the recording to a server elsewhere, would be amazingly useful.
