Dubbed Tarantella Secure Global Desktop Terminal Services Edition (TSE) 4, the access software features certificate-based server authentication, SSL encryption, and tunneling of all traffic. It also offers wider built-in client support, including Windows terminals, and Linux and Mac machines for running applications on Microsoft Windows Terminal Servers via RDP, said the Santa Cruz, Calif.-based vendor.
TSE 4, which is pitched as a companion to Windows Terminal Services, also sports performance enhancements that boost application operations when large print jobs are also running from the terminal.
Tarantella gives away Secure Global Desktop TSE 4 licenses with the purchase of a $60 two-year maintenance agreement. An evaluation copy of the new version can be downloaded from the company's Web site.
