Channel Version Published

A free Remote Desktop Client for Linux, macOS and Windows.


Thincast Client is a multi-platform RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) Client. It comes with a variety of modern features and can be integrated very easily into your existing infrastructure.

Using the Remote Desktop (RD) WebAccess Client you gain easy access to and control of published virtual machines (with Thincast Workstation), desktop sessions and applications.

Its built-in, hardware-accelerated Remote Desktop Client (RDC) delivers a rich user experience by saving valuable CPU power. Support for video capture device redirection, such as webcams from the client to a Remote Desktop Protocol server has been added with the latest version.

As of today, we are the main contributor to the FreeRDP project. In the last months we spent days and nights looking for bugs and implementing new features, which directly benefit the further development of FreeRDP.
