Linux client - NICE DCV

Linux client

The Linux client runs natively on the operating system. You can use it to connect to NICE DCV sessions that are hosted on Windows and Linux NICE DCV servers.

You install the Linux client on a Linux client computer using a software package. The software package installs all required packages and their dependencies, and performs the required client configuration.

For instructions on how to connect to a NICE DCV session using the Linux client, see Connecting to a NICE DCV session using the Linux client.
