Remote Linux Desktop for the iPad

Oct 01, 2010, 06:02 (2 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to An Anonymous Reader for this link. ]

"iLIVEx is a fast, secure and fault-tolerant X11 client that turns the Apple iPad into an X terminal for Linux and Unix. It allows iPad users to connect to Unix and Linux desktops and applications hosted on remote Unix and Linux servers.

"iLIVEx features an ultra-thin data transfer protocol allowing for LAN-like performance, even over 3G connections. Its connections also run over securely encrypted SSH tunnels. Built-in session persistency allows users to reconnect to their remote desktops should the iPad get disconnected, turned off or the user temporarily switches to another iPad app."
