You can use Winflector to remotely access applications from any web enabled platform. On Windows, Linux and Android a more optimized client can be used. These are the available clients
- Windows (native)
- Android (native)
- Linux (native)
- HTML5/JS (web)
You can get them from the official Winflector download page.
Which one to use?
If a native client is available, for the typical use cases you want to use it. On a Windows workstation you want the Windows client. The native clients have some optimizations which can’t be done in a browser and are easy to integrate with your platform. For instance, you can’t use automatic shortcut creation with the HTML5 one.
If you want to use the less common client platforms, you will use the HTML5 client. This enables you to run Winflector even on your TV, which while of little practical value, demonstrates the power of this solution.
While it is easy to deploy the native client remotely on many computers, the HTML5 client has exactly zero deployment time. In an ad-hoc setting, this might be a preferred option. As a bonus, you can install the native clients from the Winflector Web Server.
