Voice over IP via X2go

The latest changes on our Pulseaudio implementation are making it possible to use Voice Over IP applications. This is a short demonstration with the new Nokia N900 phone (we could test this device only for a very short period of time). This will work on more common setups like desktop clients too.

For anybody new to X2go – this video shows a client application which makes it possible to connect to a remote desktop. After the the connection is established you’ll see a kde 3.5 Desktop which is running on a remote machine – not local. The started voip application also runs on the server machine. What you hear at the end of the video is the recorded output of the server side voip application.

X2goclient 3.01-4 for Windows (ready for roll out)

Hello X2gousers,

after more than 2 weeks testing, we recommend to update the windows client to version 3.01-4. If you still need to use a X-server other than the build in, please let us know. The combination of X-server and X2goclient in one package solved some individual installation and configuration problems.

best regards,

Heinz

…working on a new Windows Client

In the last weeks we’ve been working on a new version of the Windows Version of X2goclient. In future X2goclient will include the X-server and not install a whole xming environment. Only needed items will be part of install package and you won’t need user interaction to get the components running.

By default the SSHD will be running in userspace, which will prevent the occurence of the problem of unset access control list options. Furthermore Usernames with white space and exoticc letters will be possible to use x2goclient even if they are part of a windows domain.

Because of the number of changes we will give you soon access to the beta version of this client. We hope to invite you to test this client at the end of next week.

Best Regards,

Heinz
